A Brief Ride through Amish/ Mennonite Country

This afternoon, while Michelle attended her fencing class,  Mark, Ben, and I rode into Amish/ Mennonite country, located only a few short miles from the college.  In total honesty,  entering this area is almost like traveling to a foreign country.  Here one can see hard-working people who are obviously richly-blessed of God!

I shan’t waste words; the photos speak for themselves.  If you hover over the photo, a brief description will appear.

  1. Awesome pictures. I love that part of the finger lakes. You know I told Sherm we were going to venture down that way this Fall and we never made it. He’s rolling on 24 or so days of work straight and just started his third 5 week welding course. Now topped with dad being in the hospital… Not busy at all!! lol I heard though many Amish are finding Oswego county as a new place to settle. That’s a closer drive for us, but not as pretty.
