Americana

My little one and I came across this beautiful farm on Highway 224, in what I believe is Snyderville, Utah…just down the road a bit from Park City.  It seems to capture the essence of an old-time farm in story-book America…days gone by….  Let Freedom ring….

      • Yes, but also tiring ones. I’ve never worked so hard in my life!

    • Wouldn’t that be wonderful, Pattu…and you are very welcome for the picture. 🙂

  10. A beautiful farm in a beautiful place! I always love how the well-maintained farms have much fancier barns than houses…and much bigger. Somehow, that always reminds me of the importance of work in their lives and how there is no separating what they do from who they are. The same was true of Dean and I as we built our business. An American sort of value system that I identify with. Thank you for reminding us, with this perfect picture, of the best of who we are as Americans.

  13. This is another one of those wonderfully evocative scenes which I see from fellow bloggers from the US. It’s lovely, like another still from a Coen brothers film!

    • Thank you, Finn…very nice words. It’s not right around the corner, but it just down the road a bit…maybe half an hour or so. I’m glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
