The Dandy Trail -- 88 Miles Around Indianapolis

Recommended Posts

The Dandy Trail followed the National Road eastbound briefly, between Franklin and Post Roads. Back then it would have been a two-lane road, but today, wow.

 

Stick around until the very end of this one for a brief surprise that quickly passes by.

 

Denny: Does your sound app recognize this one?

Annnnnnnnnd finally......

 

Finally, the south side of Indy! This is more of what people think when they think Indiana: flat, cornfields. As this video comes to an end, I'm about to come to a "Y" intersection on Troy Rd. In the 1920s, Troy went straight here, but I-465 was built through here and Troy was looped awkwardly rather than just go over the highway. I decided not to record the loop.
