Photos of a Journey -- II






1. Your blog author and childhood friend, aka the Class of '75

2. Overview of site of now extinct first farm house and farm; field in foreground (full of soybeans) was part of that farm

3. Barn on 2nd farm (resided and painted since '91)

4. I fished in many of the local creeks, catching foot-long suckers, sunfish, bullheads, even having a tangle with a snapping turtle or two; this photo suggests that Iowa creeks hold all kinds of surprises, especially after a heavy rain*

5. The north side of the 2nd farm house (extensively landscaped since '91)

6. The Presbysterian church my family attended from 1964-1971

* well okay...so maybe I didn't take this picture, and maybe it was enhanced just a tad...

Yes, great pics!

And that red barn looks like it's straight out of a fairy tale. Wow.

Just finished reading the series about your trip - an exceptional tribute to times past and memories that live on. The pictures are awesome as well.
