So driving back from Chicago I detoured south of South Bend and found myself on Rte 30, Lincoln's Highway heading east to Ft. Wayne. As the vista grew increasingly flat, I felt more and more the freedom of looking 360 around and seeing as far as I could see.
But then I got off the highway and slowly drove on unpaved farm roads...
listening to the wind
through fields of corn
I could see nothing else.
This is the quintessential farmstsead off some little road in the middle of nowhere.
