Hiking Historic Irvington

I've been wanting to get back into walking with the Indianapolis Hiking Club. I've joined them many times in the past, but life got in the way. It's a great way to get exercise. Not only that, but you get to meet really nice people, learn from them and see beautiful neighborhoods. Sometimes we have lunch together afterward.

The way the hiking schedule works, is a hike will usually occur each week for a month. When checking the hiking schedule, I noticed that an Irvington hike was taking place 4 times in May. Two of them had already passed, but I was able to make it to the last two hikes. So I'm happy to say that the Irvington hikes got me started again. 

Dan and I have roots in Irvington where we purchased our very first home in 1978. I always enjoy seeing our first home and reminiscing about our early married life there. What else do I like about Irvington? The quaintness of the neighborhood; the winding roads; the huge trees that make me want to be a kid again and climb them; the camellia, mulberry, honeysuckle bushes and the clovers that bring me back to when I tied them into necklaces; the unique homes, many of them with touches of whimsy. I could go on and on, but meanwhile, here are some photos I took during our hike.
