Every time I visit Hendricks County, Indiana, I discover more interesting people and fascinating places. On our trip this this past spring, I discovered glass artist Lisa Pelo and her gorgeous art works. My husband and I visited Lisa’s Hot Blown Glass studio, watched her create an art piece and chatted with her about her glass art business.
Having visited Hendricks County several times over the past few years, I’ve noticed how different the various areas of the county are. Within minutes you can drive from a city-like atmosphere to a rural setting, and each area offers its own brand of adventure, culture and fun.
Not being a farm girl, I always thought beehives on bee farms were the natural ones. You know, the kind that Winnie the Pooh tries to steal honey from. Was I ever wrong, as I found out when I took the Honey Barn Tour at Hunter’s Honey Farm in Martinsville, Indiana.
I love a walk in the woods, hiking a trail under a shady canopy of trees, the sun peeking through where it can, butterflies fluttering around wildflowers, twigs and dried leaves snapping and crunching beneath my feet. Sodalis Nature Park and McCloud Nature Park, both in Hendricks County, Indiana, offer several miles of trails perfect for a morning or afternoon hike.
