I've been trying to find a way to describe the landscape around here, the rural countryside and how it's changing, but I'm not getting out for any of those countryside drives except when we go back and forth to Owen Sound twice a week for my physiotherapy sessions. So I'm going to share my impressions of the land along Hwy 26 from here west to try and give you an overall impression.
I mentioned the "catastrophic" spread of corn mould in rural Ontario, leading to vomitoxins, which render the crop unusable (except perhaps for ethanol production). I'm told by a reliable source that this is only a problem further south in Ontario; there are no known cases here in Grey County.

I`m pretty sure that at some point I`ve been on that stretch of the road, particularly that first shot.ReplyDelete
Snow ploughs, lights on in the daytime, but #1 is my pick today, truly beautiful to see scenery like that. Guess there are scenes like that down here too, nature and countryside views are always wonderful.ReplyDelete
You live in a very pretty area! Snow plows we have them too:)ReplyDelete
Always like seeing the rocks that had to be blasted to make the roads. The Fraser Canyon in BC has huge areas along the highway with the rock/mountain formations left after blasting through to make the highway - always a pleasure to see them when we drive the Canyon.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the journey from your vantage point. I enjoy seeing the landscape and am glad to learn you don't have any of that mould in your area.ReplyDelete
They certainly like a straight road in your part of the world! No snowploughs on show here yet, though it got down to -6C last night and there's been snow on some of the hillier parts of the country.ReplyDelete
That is such beautiful country side in that area. The corn mould and issue for my brother in law in the New Hamburg area Dairy farm.ReplyDelete
It is beautiful to live and drive in the country. I like your pictures as you travel the roads. :)ReplyDelete
Lovey photos . We heard it through our farmer friends down this way it was mostly cattle corn that had molded which is just as bad as they need it for cattle to feed through the winter . Not much snow here all though it keeps trying lol ! Thanks for sharing , have a good weekend !ReplyDelete
Nice views. Come spring, I may have to load up the Goldwing and ride up your way.ReplyDelete
We do indeed live in a beautiful part of the country alright and for that I think we are very fortunate. Nice to be near big bodies of water, forests, rural farm lands plus hills and dales with no nearby big cities or mad manic traffic mania.ReplyDelete
Your drive and the photos brought back memories of the beautiful area in which you live. It was 23 to 24 C here yesterday. This area does not even invest in snow plows. There is a small supply of sand and salt for road treatment. It might have to be used 4 or 5 days a year.ReplyDelete
