I ran down into the valley. This used to be my normal 4 mile route. It's the flattest area around!
This is going up about a 1/2 mile gradual hill.
This route has some good climbs, many rolling ups and downs like this.
This is by a farm. Notice anything funny about this Amish buggy?
Yes, it has rubber tires on it. This is actually an "English" farm (which means non-Amish.) The farmer that owns this buggy actually uses some of the Amish technology, including plowing fields with horse and plow. This means he can get some ground turned over when it may still be too wet for an "English" tractor.
As you can see, I live in the country. Beautiful views and beautiful countryside.
Nice view. We own all the land you see to the left, and more on the right.
I checked on the ponies' water supply while I was out. The drought we are in has the horse trough losing water. It's fed by a natural spring, but it hasn't rained here but once in August. The ponies are not ours, they belong to a local Amish man, we are renting the pasture out. But if the water continues to drop in the trough the horses will need to be moved.
10.50 miles, very nice run in nature today. Everything felt good!
