Monon Trail
by Kailey and Lily
The Monon Trail is a trail that runs through down-town Carmel, Indiana and beyond. There are smaller branches off the Monon such as the Hagan Burke Trail. Lining the sides of the Monon are many stores and restaurants, also scattered throughout it are statues of people in action. The Monon is a place where you can walk, run, bike, etc.. We went to the Monon and took pictures of the beautiful scenery and people exercising in it. Then in our art class we made collages by cutting out colored paper and gluing to a picture of the Monon, and then we put them together to create one big picture.
