Rural Wisconsin in Fall


On Saturday I drove  up to visit Nick at his hunting shack…he was snuggled in the woods for the day so I did a little small business shopping with my Sister in Shawano… I made her stop so I could take this pic of a barn with it’s beautiful barn quilt.  The barn was on HWY 29.

Nick’s shack  is on a farm where  Mr. Ed lives. Or at least this is what Nick calls him.  I actually went up and petted him and found out his name is Black Jack.  He looks brown here but he’s really black the sun was shining brightly on him while  he was enjoying the evening sunset with us. He is quite tall at 17 hands. 

Also on the trip I pass this little town hall and this time I stopped to take a picture they actually still use this town hall as the agenda for the next meeting was on the door.

    The barn pic almost seems surreal… with its butterscotch and beige fall colors, rich green grass, and the way the trees feather into the teal sky. Beautiful!

    Thanks for the “rural pics”. I lived in the country for 30 years of my life and at times I miss it. Black Jack was a treat!
