Autumn Drive In The Countryside - Part 1

I was having trouble with a leaky stock tank and had to run down to the local hardware store to buy some silicone sealant. But it was such a lovely day that I decided to turn the trip into a photographic driving tour, beginning with my own barn, hay bales and house:

I passed by three miniature horses:

And an old tractor parked off in the brush. I would guess that it's been there for many years, perhaps even decades:

I passed by the barn where Amish men build furniture. Their doors were open but I didn't see anyone inside:

One neighbor was harvesting corn for silage:

One man harvested the corn and another drove the filled wagons back to the farm:

I passed by this landmark in the settlement of Fort Jackson. It's an old, unused barn with a square, wooden silo:

And every autumn I love to photograph the Fort Jackson Cemetery:

The Fort Jackson Cemetery is a thin strip of gravestones, backed up by maple trees which are spectacularly colored every autumn:

I turned onto route 49 and stopped for a quick shot of this house, all dressed up for autumn with pumpkins and corn stalks. But there was more to see on my driving tour, so I'll post Part 2 tomorrow:
