Brain Trail









A close-up of my favorite brain


This temporary exhibit is called "Big Brains!" and is part of the Stigma Free Fishers initiative.  The mayor of Fishers, Indiana and his team want to raise awareness about mental health issues in the community.  This campaign came about after an increase in the number of suicides in the area.

Ruby Montana's Coral Sands Inn






This 1952 hotel is a kitschy paradise.  Each of the six rooms has its own theme.  We stayed in the Poodle Room.  The kidney-shaped pool is a great place to make new friends.

Salvation Mountain











A strange and wondrous sight in the middle of the desert.

This mountain is made of adobe, straw, and lead-free paint.  The artist, Leonard Knight, passed away in 2014, but volunteers are helping to preserve the site.
