What was supposed to be a 296-mile canal through Indiana was halted by the arrival of the steam powered locomotive in the 1830’s. So what we have now is a 3-mile loop in the heart of Indy. We took a walk around the canal last Sunday.

There are a number of museums accessible from the canal. The Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art is one such museum. And I happen to love it! We visited the Eiteljorg on one of our earlier visits to Indy.

Lots of great art can be found along the wall – both commissioned and of the more spontaneous variety.
