Holmes County, Ohio, Rolling Countryside
Holmes County is hillier than Miami. It is also home to many of Ohio's Amish residents. People come from all over Ohio as well as from states further away to see the countryside in the fall when the foliage is bright. They come all year round to buy quilts, and furniture and other Amish crafts. They also like to eat the traditional foods found in the many restaurants...noodles, fried chicken, pickled beets and eggs, homemade pies...
Tom took the photo above and the one below from the parking lot of one of those restaurants.
Another way we can tell we are in an Amish area is by the work horses in the fields. Although there are electric lines along this road, many of the Amish do not rely on electricity from these lines.
