One of the best things about living in Dane County, and specifically working in Sun Prairie, is that I am never more than a 10 minute drive from the country. Dairy farms and the red barns that punctuate the landscape are never too far to remind me of my roots. My dad did grow up on a dairy farm, after all.
A favorite lunch break of mine is pick up a portable lunch at Sentry, tune into Democracy Now on WORT, and drive north on Country N. Within minutes, I’ve left downtown Sun Prairie, passed the subdivisions on the fringe, and I am in rural Wisconsin. Being able to do that and be back before my lunch break is over is something I am very grateful for.
The wind was wicked today; at some points I wondered what the fog up ahead was, only to realize it was blowing snow. Thus, my photos lack artistic composition, because I took most of them while sitting in my car with the window down. Still, I wanted to share the scenery for which I am grateful. To see the whole collection, click on any of the photos and go to the Sun Prairie set on my Flickr page.
