02-14-15 IHC Wabash College and Sugar Creek Trail (1)

 This past Saturday at the end of spring break I held an Indianapolis Hiking Club hike at Wabash College. Attached is a picture of our group in front of the Trippett Center. It was an unexpurgated tour with comments about fraternity hijinks, the senior bench, compulsory chapel, the fabulous Trippet story of the young Abe Lincoln statue with parts of the dog painted scarlet, etc.  No sons and grandsons wanting to go to Wabash, but there were two interested grand-daughters.  There was one question about the college restricting it’s admission to men only: “Is this legal?” We dined at the Creekside Lounge and hiked the Sugar Creek Trail in the afternoon.
