Spring Break 2000

Day 9

On Saturday morning we left Pittsburg on US 22 and took it to Ohio state route 7, which we took to I-70. It followed the Ohio River, and was scenic. We took I-70 to Columbus, Ohio. We stopped downtown and looked at the state capitol, and walked around the downtown a bit. We then took off for Dayton. One thing we noticed was that to the east of Columbus it was pretty hilly, and to the west was very flat, like much of Indiana and Illinois.

We drove through downtown Dayton, although we didn't stop, as we didn't see much of anything. We then drove to Indianapolis, our where our motel was.
