We stayed in Grand Rapids last night as my part of the trip involves some research in the area. This morning, Sunday, we headed east to the state capital of Lansing to see the Capitol building. Lansing is about an hour's drive from our base here.
Unfortunately, we had a cloudy day with some rain. Still, the Capitol looked handsome as we approached it. Lansing feels like a smaller town, although, at about 115,000 it certainly not one of the smallest capital cities.
We took several pictures. Click on one to go to the Flickr site and browse through them if you wish. Since it was Sunday we were unable to do an inside tour.
I did photograph the cornerstone and the historical markers.
Since Lansing is also a big college town the restaurants are plentiful and we tried the MBC with good results for lunch.
