The road to Seneca Lake from Barnesville
is a winding, hilly road that twists into hairpin turns
and dives down just to instantly climb again.
There is one particular section that always 'takes my breath away'.
There are two homes on a long curve
that have incredible views down into a valley of farm land.
I decided to try and capture the view.
I do not feel that I did it justice,
but I decided to feature it anyway.
The first shot originally showed the road and part of my car,
but I cropped those out.
I am actually on a high hill although it doesn't look it.
Here I zoomed in a bit more.
The light was not as good on this one,
but it does show two of the barn settings.
You can barely see the second barn with its silo in the upper right-hand corner.
It is part of another farm that is further from the first farm
than it may seem.
Here is yet another barn setting.
This one came in clearer.
The road that leads down to these farms
is called New Gottengutt Road
and has many Mennonites and a few Amish
homes and farms on it.
There are a few with full electricity and modern conveniences also.
I feel quite blessed to live in the hills of southeastern Ohio.
A drive to the lake or to work
is never boring.
