Track & Field Day

This brought back memories of the many Track & Field days, I have been involved in, either as a student, or as a principal.

I am not sure I have ever seen any Amish walking on this Rails to Trails trail in Millersburg. The trail is so far from their homes they wouldn’t walk that far. I do see them quite often on the trail with their horse carriages or their bicycles. Over the years they have contributed a lot of money for the trail, because it gives them a safer route than coming to town the whole way on a two-lane highway. I suspect they had been at the nearby hospital, and decided to go for a walk.

Pumpkin Spice Trail in Shipshewana, Indiana gets a lot of traffic.

I took this photo of these siblings, and the older boy came running to look at my screen to see what the photo looked like, that I took of him! Fun times!

Un-Posed

I was trying to take only pictures, with not too much cooperation! 🙂 Later they cooperated, but I thought this was a great un-posed photo!

Helping Hands

It looks like the climb down the stairs was successful! A great family to travel with.

One of the many scenes I had on a 20 day taxi road trip with 5 young Amish men (Aged 22-39). Now home, before a 7 day road trip to Northeastern USA. It feels like a 40 hour layover! Maybe after that I will be more consistent with posts!

With such a nice morning, traveling to the wedding with an open carriage is a pleasant ride!

This Amish couple are traveling to a wedding with their “golf cart!” They are probably at the age, etc., that hitching up a horse for a trip wouldn’t be possible!

I have a dilemma! I still haven’t posted many of my photos from my weekend in Charleston, SC. yet! I also have got some nice photos this week, that haven’t been posted. On Monday I am heading for the West Coast, hoping to reach Yosemite National Park by Wednesday evening. This is a 20-day trip, so there should be some great photos coming up! See you then!
