McAuslin Road to O'Connell Road - Part 1

McAuslin Road runs from the town of Lawrence, in St. Lawrence County, into Franklin County, where it becomes O'Connell Road. I decided it would make a great driving tour one day. At the start, most of the road was through woodlands, with occasional grassy lanes which led back into the forest:

The forest was not old, but it was lush and green:

Then I began to see homes along the road, such as this blue house with pink and blue lawn chairs:

This barn was filled with old equipment:

A venerable old farm house:

This looked to me like a horse barn, though I didn't see any animals:

I pulled my car to the side of the road and got out when I saw a whole stretch of Blue Flag (wild Iris). They were in standing water, as they like it, and were lovely:

Here's a close-up:

I continued on my way, passing this mobile home. It did not appear to be lived in except that someone was mowing the grass for access:

A smaller home with a double garage, all neat and tidy and set back into the trees. But I'd just begun my driving tour and there was much yet to see. I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
