The Indian

On Sunday we visited the Indian.

This park is only a mile away from my house. I sometimes walk there on Sundays for a change of scenery.

Johnson City is the sister city to Guaranda, Ecuador and this is our friendship arch dedicated in 1982.

The park is also home to this massive sculpture by Peter Wolf Toth.

The Trail of the Whispering Giants is a collection of sculptures by Hungarian-born artist Peter Wolf Toth. The sculptures range in height from 20 to 40 feet (6.1 to 12.2 m), and are between 8 and 10 feet (2.4 and 3.0 m) in diameter. Currently there are 74 Whispering Giants, with at least one in each of the 50 U.S. states, as well as in Ontario and Manitoba, Canada, and one in Hungary. In 1988, Toth completed his goal of placing at least one statue in each of the 50 states, by carving one in Hawaii, and in 2008, he created his first Whispering Giant in Europe, Stephen I of Hungary in Délegyháza, Hungary along the Danube River.

This picture shows the massive scale of the sculpture. 
I am five feet seven inches tall.

Lightning struck the sculpture at some time in the past. Thankfully it survived.

This very casual look includes old jeans from Chico's and a several years old shirt from The Van Heusen Women's collection. The sandals are from T.J.Maxx. The belt is by Ralph Lauren from Belk.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. 
The second fifty years really are the best!

The sculptures are amazing. That would be a very interesting place to visit. Love that shade of turquoise (?), aqua (?) on you.
