A drive through Amish country

We went for a drive in the hopes of finding some nice fall foliage a couple of weekends ago in an area that made National Geographic’s 2014 top 10 list of great places to see autumn leaves in the world; Holmes County, Ohio.

It was a very nice drive but alas nature was not putting on that kind of show.ย  The rolling hills and farmlands were nice to see but the weather had left the area either almost all green or with just the barest touches of fall colors.ย  This county is also Amish country and that we saw plenty of… and tourists shopping for quilts and other items.

The last photo was taken at a grocery store in Berlin, Ohio that had the tastiest pretzels that were actually shaped like a horse and buggy.

    Ok, you can’t tell me about the pretzel and then not share a photo of it, but if you’re anything like me, I think about snapping a photo of my food ‘after’ it’s eaten ๐Ÿ˜

    These are common scenes in Dover and also here in Pennsylvania. When we first moved to Dover in the early 70s, there were more horse and buggy’s than cars – it was definitely eye opening for a New Yorker!

    When I was younger I use to just take off driving and I remember being in Holmes County and a town called Killbuck. I always thought I’d live there some day. Great photo’s
