Summer in the Country

The rural landscapes of Pennsylvania and nearby Ohio are showing off their abundance of wildflowers and sunflowers. A ride in the country can delight us with these beautiful blossoms… along with beautiful barns, vineyards, churches, corn fields and covered bridges!

I made a scrapbook of the covered bridges we saw in Ashtabula County of Ohio. They are hidden away, on back country roads, just waiting for you to find them.

Getting out and exploring is what makes life an adventure! You never know what you are going to see!

Hope your summer is turning out to be an adventure for you!

Until Next Time ~Nancy
