A Fall Ride Through Amish Country

Ginnie BakerThe Clear Fork Valley and the surrounding countryside are all decked out in fall colors. I’m going to let photos of the area do my “talking” in this blog! One photo is truly worth a thousand words.

Once a week, we drive to nearby Mount Vernon to shop. It’s a drive of about 15 miles one way and on the way back to Bellville, we always stop at an Amish friend’s bulk food store to stock up on homemade oat bran bread and other bulk items.

At this time of year, the drive is exceptionally beautiful with the trees dressed in their fall finest and the farm animals out grazing on the dew-laden field grass.

The Amish are partial to Jersey cows so there are a lot of them out grazing.


Our drive this past week was exceptionally beautiful and, fortunately, I had my trusty little camera with me.
