A trip out to Brown County

The past few posts I've concentrated on more work-related parts of my top ranked MBA program, so this time I want to switch things up and concentrate on some of the great parts of Kelley's MBA social life.

This past weekend, my girlfriend and I took a day trip out to Brown County to enjoy the fall scenery.

Along the drive to Nashville, IN, the trees are yellow, orange and red

In Brown County, we walked around The Village of Nashville, stopping in stores and enjoying the local scenery. To end our time in Nashville, I had some amazing Pumpkin Pie ice cream.

After Nashville, we headed up to the Apple Works, an orchard near Brown County. While we couldn't pick our own apples there, we did explore around the orchard and picked out our own pumpkin. They also had a little petting zoo and a very busy shop that sold any kind of apple product (fruit, not technology) that you could want. Maybe next year they will listen to some top ranked MBAs from Kelley and add in apple picking to the activities you can do there.

To top off a great fall day, we decided that we needed to get into the Halloween spirit. After a quick Google search, we found The Barn of Terror, a haunted house in Bloomington. It lived up to its billing, as it was incredible scary and a great way to finish off a fantastic fall day.
