Spirit Of America

On Thursday after leaving the Visitation for my Grandmother, my Mom suggested we take another route back to Columbus. The landscape was beautiful and was hoping to find a country church.



I finally pulled over near Elgin, Nebraska and snapped this shot quick of the moon rising over the farmland. This is an area where they are installing new wind turbines and they are scattered among the hills.



This farmer stopped, opened the window to the tractor and asked if I liked the scene. "I love it!" He agreed and told me that was his house (just behind me and to the right) which looked like it was recently built.



Not sure if you can tell, but his young son was in the tractor with him in the cab.



We chatted for a bit and I gave him my card so he could email me. I'm hoping he does so I can send him this photo.
