Corydon Thunder in the Woods 2018
This past weekend I attended Thunder in the Woods in Corydon, Iowa. The Civil War reenactment took place in the Corydon city park – a perfect place with rolling hills, tall trees and lots of tents. I enjoyed hiking through the woods, taking photos and forgetting about everything except the moment.
Most of the time was simply relaxing. Yep, I said relaxing. Folks were sitting around camp fires, stirring coals, tossing on logs… and they were visiting. Actually using words. I didn’t notice iPads. I don’t remember folks texting. I do remember someone taking about football scores – so somebody must have checked the scores on their phone. Oh well, I guess its not easy to stay completely in the 1800’s. Smile.
The day was warm and muggy – but you would not have known it when talking to the folks there. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day! I guess I’m not the only one who appreciates stepping back in time. 🙂
Oh, I forgot to mention, the artillery made some noise. Some really LOUD NOISE!!!!!!!!!!!
I plan to share more photos in the next few posts. This post will also be forwarded to my Facebook page.
