Snyder County in central Pennsylvania is home to a small population of Amish residents.

Reader Jerry recently paid a visit to the county and captured some scenes showing the fall colors and more.

In honor of the season, here are some of Jerry’s photos from his visit taken in mid-October. And here’s a little background from Jerry on what you’ll see below:

When most people think of fall colors, they think of trees turning red, yellow or orange. Well today I went to find some new fall colors. I went to visit the Plain people in Synder County, Pa.

I started the day at the Buffalo Valley Produce Auction. Farmers bring their produce in bulk and the buyers from chain grocery stores, roadside markets and farmers markets come to get the best the season has to offer. These wholesale auctions only get the best looking assortments since they will command the highest prices.

Next I went to a couple of Mennonite stores and I had a couple of pics from there. Along the way, I stopped at roadside stands to see what they were up to. And a couple of fun shots that just popped up along the way. It was a great day.
