The arrival of fall brings with it, crisp cool air and some of the most spectacular colors. Bright orange pumpkins, ready for the picking, can be seen from the roadways and trees with leaves of the brightest oranges, reds and yellows you have ever seen make your drive that much more enjoyable.
Corn mazes have been carefully chopped from the fields presenting some of the most challenging courses you have ever walked. Storefronts are decorated to match the outdoor scenery and make your shopping experience that much more festive.
Fall is by far my favorite season and I can't wait to experience it for the first time in the Heartland. As I drive down the country roads, I hope to capture the beauty of the fall countryside and share my pictures with you in issues to come.
In this edition of the Heartland, you will read about a small craft store that is making a big difference in the lives of those living in underprivileged countries. Learn about the strong traditions and ethics that make up the Amish culture. When you plan your next visit to the Heartland, make sure to book your stay at the Inn where the horses roam free and the view is to die for.
October has proven to be one the busiest months within the Heartland. With a fantastic scenic drive and plenty of shopping, how could you not be enticed to travel the winding roads of Amish Country? As you are traveling through the countryside, taking in the view, be mindful of the buggies that are sharing the road with you. This is their home and their livelihood. So slow down and keep an eye out and I'm sure you will be rewarded with a friendly wave and smile from the Amish people.
