I love exploring the backroads of Holmes County, immersing myself in Amish country and just seeing what I can see. Most often such a drive will be rewarded with a quirky or unusual scene. For instance, yesterday, I was driving along and saw plenty of laundry on lines. But at one house on the laundry line next to the standard dark denim trousers and work shirts were some bright flaming red towels. Just something that catches ones eye in a sea of black and blue. This was a buggy I was behind yesterday, but if you look closely you'll see that it's pulling a little cage with a calf in it. Stay tuned in the days ahead for more scenes and stories from my stay in the world's largest Amish settlement: Holmes County. The autumn crowds have cleared and one has the roads to themselves, so it's a great time to come!
