Why We Moved to the Country---in Pictures



It's been ten years since we've lived here, and we still occasionally get asked why we left our southeastern suburb to move to a rural area up north.  "You're so far away from everything," they say.  "But there's nothing there," I hear from others.  "You mean that even the nearest Walmart is twenty miles away?" they gasp.  As incredulous as it may seem, we chose to leave a beautiful, safe, preppy suburb in a warm climate to move 700 miles north to a quiet, sparsely populated, mountain farmhouse amidst the old-order Amish.  Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I'll let this week's photos describe our reasons for me.










Oh, and these were all snapped from my Samsung Tracphone.  No photography equipment or skills necessary out here in God's country.

    1. Thanks, Net. It's sometimes tiring to have to drive so much for everything, but the peace and aesthetics of this place make it worth it.
