wonderful shot, love the way you have captured the "length" of the road - its very very "Wizard of Oz"

Beautiful rolling hillside… I bet this is stunning in winter as well.

Wifely...I have just bought a new digital camera and wanted to start learning....we are anxiously awaitng the fall colours in this area...it's absolutely stunning..unfortunately you have to catch it just right because it doesn't last too long........

LynJvV...this is called a "split-rail" fence..it uses no nails or pins....and is usually made from split black locust trees.....it was quite common in rural America before nails became common......adds a unique look on things I believe....

Annaschnitfink...thank you so very much...I thought others would like to see the old wooden fences..........I'm so glad that we have preserved this historic location...just as it existed in 1860's......a major event in our history....
