I’ve spent the last few days traveling through Nebraska and Iowa and the scenery on the back roads was tremendous. Anyone who wonders how planets in science fiction can be so different must not have ever left their back yard. We drove through incredible rolling hills, valleys filled with thick fog and deep green fields of soybeans. Acres of corn in various states of growth and hershey crops–some clearly stressed by drought and some blessed with much rain. The people were so wonderful everywhere. We had homemade ice-cream at a farm show in Albert City, Iowa that was not only delicious but had been cranked by a hook-up with an antique tractor! Many horses from Haflingers to Belgians were showing off working antique farm machinery. The photo with this post is one of my favorite horses, Oreo-personality plus!
