    Near Wooster, maybe?

    My husband and I met at the College of Wooster, in Wooster, Wayne County, OH. A wonderful college!!
    I’ll bet one of the women’s dorm employees was of Amish or Mennonite background. When one of the students left her suitcases in the lobby, this lady hung a sign over them: “Whose suitcases these are better take them upstairs.”

    I’m liking that image as well Erik, and id say that one would be a keeper and would make a great back ground for a computer screen. Richard from Amish Stories. www.Amishstorys.com

    Also judging by the contents of the picture I would say you are somehwere in a farm area of Wayne County… Mind you, it’s just a guess though…

    Wayne County has both Amish and Hobits?

    What's with the box?

    Is that a mailbox he’s getting into? Low flying bird house? Photoshop it out and wow, you’ve got great!

      I visit Wayne and Holmes Counties once a year and love the photo. Perhaps I have even been past that house. I love seeing, reading about and learning more about the Amish. May they continue to enjoy the freedoms they do now.

    One of the things I love about visiting Amish Country is the dead silence you can experience sometimes. That special kind of quiet that comes from no cars, no refrigerators humming, no leaf blowers! To me this photo captures that quiet. Thanks Erik.

    Ahhh! Silence without "shushing"!

    Betsy, I would LOVE to experience that kind of quiet, at least now and then. There sure isn’t much “silence” at the library where I work! (And we’re not allowed to “shush”, anymore.) It “sounds” like heaven!

    Sorry for the errors, should have reread it before I submitted….hey Erik, do you think you could work on this and let us review it before we hit enter? That way we could correct our mistakes……

    I meant to say in it, not in in…..and for vacation, I omitted the n…..sorry about that….I do not like mispelled words…..so next time I shall reread before I hit enter :)

    Glad you liked this shot. In answer to some of the questions, I’m not exactly sure how far I was from Wooster, my Wayne County internal compass is a lot weaker than my Holmes County one.

    That is actually a mailbox in the foreground. I did not even notice the guy until after I took the picture :)

    Probably gone pass there..

    I’m a bicyclist in Wayne County and probably have cycle pass that Amish farm many times. I’ve been riding in the county + Holmes county for many years now. Cycling is a great way to see the slower pace of the Amish community.

      Pumpkinvine bike trail in Amish Indiana

      Speedy that seems like great riding country. Probably harder once you get into the gravel roads more common in Holmes. I am not a biker, but did ride a bit in Wayne County, once. Also the Holmes County trail.

      They have opened something similar to that one in northern Indiana called the Pumpkinvine Trail. Looked like it was getting some use when I drove across it a few times last week. It is going to run from Shipshewana to Goshen but it’s not all open yet. http://www.pumpkinvine.org/

    May I Use a Photo?

    Dear Erik,
