It’s tradition when my friend Dawn and I take a road trip that we stop for ice cream along the way. There has never failed to be an ice cream shop, even if it was just a Dairy Queen, on every road trip.

Our road trip tradition was annual from 2006 until the pandemic interrupted it. This was our first post-pandemic trip, and it felt great to be on the road again.

We explored all of the oldest alignments we could find of Indiana State Road 67 southwest from Indianapolis. When we reached Worthington we found the Route 67 Ice Cream and Diner. Inside we found a shiny, sparkling tin ceiling. It looked so good that it had to be brand new. I brought my Nikon Df to my eye to make this image. I assume that the lighting fooled the meter, turning the ceiling gray. But I love the look. Check out all of that detail!
