in amish country, ’tis the season for harvesting corn the pre-industrial way.
the scenic commute in these parts never gets old.
indeed, the earth is not a cold dead place ( see what i did there? ). seen on my early evening run. had to trespass in a few backyards to get a proper vantage. glad i made the effort 🙂
they say, the average cloud weighs a million pounds. i’m guess this one is above average.
amish “corn shocks” are piles of drying corn which will soon be gathered up on wagons and hand shucked or run through a corn picker.
7 mile run. Soon the corn i’ve been watching grow while occasionally almost forrest gumping it will be harvested and then the snow will fall.
and then, the soybeans will be planted.
it’s impossible to convey the beauty of the view from the top of the ridge just a mile from my desk at organic valley. maybe a picture is worth a thousand words.
the view of the classic driftless region geography makes for quite an energizing “out and back” lunch run even on a dull day, all the more so when it’s sunny, green and lush.
do yourself a favor and view large on a big screen.
out on the first 7 mile leg of a 14 mile run in coolish temperature and fog while listening to breathe by minnesota and i had a thought that if it was on infinite jukebox i could possibly maybe have just forrest gumped it and just kept going and going and going…
