Culver Military Academy

We rode up to Culver Military Academy today.  We (twelve of us) stopped at the restaurant across from Grissom Reserve Air Force Base, near Peru,  for a quick breakfast and a cup of coffee before starting our ride up north:

We rode through areas that had standing water from all the rain they received up north of us.  A couple places the water ran over the road surface causing us to slow down to a crawl.  This has been one of the wettest months of May in Indiana history.

After arriving in Culver, we rode around Lake Maxinkuckee that sets beside Culver, Indiana.  Culver is the home of The Culver Military Academy.

Some of the buildings at Culver Military Academy:

Culver Academy is known for it's soccer, rowing, and equestrian teams.

They had a lot of standing water at the Academy soccer fields--the tents are a nice touch.

After a "riding tour" of The Academy, we stopped  at The Dairy Queen for ice cream, and then rode home.

I rode 187 miles today.  Beautiful weather.
