    What beautiful country!! I guess I didn’t realize there were Amish in that part of the country. I think it is neat how they raise school funding. A couple of weeks ago,I saw an ad for the annual Amish auction for the Ulysses,PA Amish school. I had hoped to go,but our new grandson decided to be born..so I was babysitting!! There will be more sales throughout the fall,so hopefully I can get to one. Looking forward to the other posts from Virginia!!

    Kevin .. yes, that Bland county area is beautiful .. I used to live a few miles from this community .. and I know you will appreciate it when I tell you I moved to this state because of the mountains .. but now I have moved down the road to NC near another Amish community ..
    But these beautiful picture sure have me missing the awesome countryside of Bland County Virginia ..

    Aahhhhhh! I can smell the country air and feel the sunshine on my face,
    such a beautiful photo. The Amish man seems to have pulled over to the
    side of the road to check out the livestock and enjoy the view himself.
