There are many truths of which the full meaning cannot
be realized until personal experience has brought it home.
– John Stuart Mill
In an attempt to organize photo albums in Lightroom, I ran across a few that I have not reviewed. The images published today are from back-roading in the charming area surrounding our home, Southeast MN and Southwest WI. Working on these images brought back wonderful memories and will display buildings that are not standing any longer.
For instance, the images of the one room school house in Elgin, MN seen below, is no longer standing. Visit an earlier post from 2014: When the School Bell Rang
The next couple of images are views seen around our area due to Frac Sand Mining. I still remember passing by the beautiful trees, hills, and marshes, when all of a sudden we ran into a large mound of golden sand. Thankfully, the Frac Sand Mining industry here in our area is dying down.
While we are blessed to share our lives now with “the new kids” on the block, Clover and Lucy, we will forever miss the two inseparable, mischievous, opportunists we called Tindra and Audrey.
Enjoy the sights from this day as we traveled the small towns and dirt roads.
