Skywatch Friday - Season 4, Episode 47

Farms in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania Dutch Country on a hot and hazy day earlier this week

The farms in this area are typically Amish or Mennonite dairy producers. 
The crops growing in these pics are corn and alfalfa which are used as feed for the animals with excess sold at market.

 

  
  
  

I love driving through this area and seeing the rolling hills and farms.

There are some beautiful stretches of road out there. You had a nice brilliant blue sky the day your took your drive.

You can really see by the variations in color how humans have utilized the land. I just finished reading a book about an Amish farm this morning, so this post was timely.

I sure agree! Love seeing the rolling hills with the farms that are kept up so nice looking (from a distance anyway!)

Beautiful country. My family comes from the Lancaster area and I had forgotten how pretty it is. Thanks.
