Taking A Tour Of The Northern Farmland

I was up at the farm all day on Black Friday and didn't have much else to do, so I drove in to Massena to buy groceries and supplies. But I took the scenic route, a circuitous path which would give me a tour of more of my rural neighbors to be. I began snapping photos and got carried away with it.
