Angel Mounds, Indiana

Trying to drive on secondary roads affords be the view of America forgotten by most who normally travel via Interstate Highways.
The west side of Ohio and central Indiana continuously caught my attention and had me pulling over for a look see.  This is what I enjoy.

Angel Mounds was a large sight along a river that had protected itself with 15-18' wood and mud stockades(walls) for defensive protection.
 The state had a very large and informative museum on site.  This was a wall mural depicting the village.
                                     A replica hut made of local reeds found along the river.

I took an hour to walk the area and relax.  Much better than a stop at MacDonalds for sure.
