Backroads

I could drive around the backroads all day long. And by driving, I mean Ed driving and me taking pictures. Here are a few things we came across while out and about. A barn with a pretty pastel roof and a cross that was wired to light up at night...

Another classic red barn, which when placed next to the navy blue towers on the left, created a very patriotic theme...
The biggest horse I've ever seen up close. If his muscles were any indication, he was clearly used for pulling plows. He let me get close enough to touch him...
And take pictures of his gigantic hooves, which were the size of my head!
In addition to snapping a picture of him chowing down on the handful of hay I fed him...
And then this, which may be a common sight to the locals, but I've never seen this many buggies at one time on the road.
It was like an Amish convoy.

I'm reading your january stuff. You need to rewrite the convoy song to fit in with the 'Amish convoy' you photographed. That's too funny.

I think I'm becoming a trucking groupie.
