On To Amish Country Ohio


We left Michigan to head into Ohio and spend a few days in Holmes county,  home of thelargest Amish settlement in America.

Most of these are taken from the car as we toured the country roads.

The Amish have a variety of buggies for transporting themselves and their goods.







These next two are my favourites.  This young Amish girl was hurrying home out of the rain and I admired her bravery as she tucked herself into an aerodynamic position to hurtle down that hill
 
...then she relaxed and took a wide swing into the driveway on the left.  She had definitely taken that turn before!


Beautiful farmland.



Many thanks for joining me on the trip!

  2. A simple life it seems. I lived in a community like this. One could ride their horse to town.

  9. What great photos. I have a sister who lives in Missouri and she used to live in a very small town where there was a large Amish community. When I'd visit her, I'd see these same types of scenes.

  23. The Amish are brave people to continue living a lifestyle so different from what everyone else chooses. Enjoyed your photos of their quiet part of the country.

  24. I cannot believe you are only an hour away from our farm! What a coincidence considering you're so far from your home! It is a lovely place...simple, quiet, back-to-basics...a lovely way to spend a day. -Mary

  25. Hello Christine!:) A lovely glimpse of the Amish way of life, and the beautiful countryside where they abide. I particularly liked the Amish girl on her bicycle peddling hell for leather to get home out of the rain, and the horse and trap scene.
