From there, we travelled W on Territorial Road, which is at the MI-OH border, and I saw some nice terrain that could be good places to go back to in the summer for dragonfly work. We eventually ended up in Fremont, IN, and then went back N into MI, going up Quincy Rd to US-12. There are quite a few Amish farms in that area, and some pretty nice scenery. At a small lake, we saw dozens of Sandhiil Cranes, and more came flying into land in the late afternoon sunlight. It was a beautiful moment.
On US-12, we started near Allen, which is a HUGE antiques place. Will have to go back there again. The drive back took us through more small towns, some strange weather -- a brief snow/rainstorm that was quite intense for about a mile. Then it cleared up again.
It was a nice drive, and something that I enjoy doing with Marjorie. I wonder how many teen-agers enjoy doing that?
The photo was taken along Quincy Road in Branch County, as the sunlight raked across the field. I saw the scene coming together and pulled over and had time for about 5 shots before the sun went behind a cloud.
