Just like everybody else, when I read about an auto trail that I've never heard of before and which starts just twenty miles from my door, I take it. I had previously driven many pieces of the Wonderland Way but not all of it and never as a unified auto trail. Now, thanks to the article and map in the latest issue of American Road, I have.

You scofflaw.

 

I had no idea about this route. I've driven portions of it, esp. IN SR 62, which is one of my favorite drives in the state.

 

And I've GOT to go see the Triple Whipple one day.

My neighbors nearer the front of my condo complex have promised to give me a heads-up if they see an Indiana State Trooper pull in.

 

Like you, I'd driven much of it with no idea that a named auto trail had ever run that way. Knowing that gave the trip a little more definition and I did get to places I'd never been before but roads like 62 are pretty no matter what you call them. There's a good chance you have seen the Triple Whipple. It is visible on the west side of IN 56 heading out of Aurora. After I visited, I could recall seeing the bridge off in the distance but I'd never taken the time to reach it or count the Whipples.

Enjoyed your blog of your Wonderland Way Trip Denny! And, I agree, the Triple Whipple is a very picturesque span.
