Indianapolis, IN - our State Capitol

Scene along the route to our hotel...Unexpected sculpture photographed from car window. A fountain was a part of this dramatic, larger-than-life work. We didn't stop to get closer, but it would be worth going back to see! You can click on the picture to see it better.
The night was beautiful while we waited for the shuttle to take us back to the hotel. Downtown was hopping with activity!
These are the ladies with whom I attended Women of Faith.
Indianapolis is the capital of the U.S. state of Indiana. The United States Census estimated the city's population, excluding the included towns, at 798,382 in 2008. It is Indiana's largest city and is the 14th largest city in the U.S., the third largest city in the Midwest (behind Chicago and Detroit), and the second most populous state capital (behind Phoenix, Arizona). It is one of two state capitals that shares its name with its state (The other is Oklahoma City).

For much of its history, Indianapolis' economy centered around government manufacturing. Today, it has a much more diversified economy that includes the fields of education, health care, and finance. Tourism is also a vital part of the economy of Indianapolis, and the city plays host to many conventions and sporting events. Of these, perhaps the most well known is the annual Indianapolis 500 mile race. Other major sporting events include the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard (formerly the "Brickyard 400") and the Men's and Women's NCAA Basketball Tournaments.

While we were there, the national Drum and Bugle Corps competitions were being held in Lucus Oil Stadium (home of the Indianapolis Colts football team). The 12,000 women attending Women of Faith met at Conseco Fieldhouse - the home of the Pacers (basketball).


  1. I've only been to one "Women of Faith" conferences and I too was glad I went. I was fortunate that it was about 30 minutes from where I lived so I didn't have to have the bad hotel experience.
    Continue in your growing as His daughter.
    Be Strengthened and Blessed!!!!
