It was really FLAT

I've never been in Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin.  But here we are -- seeing mostly flat land in the first two states.  Amazingly flat, amazing views as far as the eye can see. 

Saw some huge farms, huge equipment, huge granaries, huge windmills.  Big stuff in these states.  We are from a smaller state, smaller homes, smaller estates.  Whew, I was overwhelmed with these two states and their hugeness. 

Not many trees to break up the views of enormous expanses of corn fields.  Everything is flat in every direction. 

Wisconsin, on the other hand, has some slight rolling inclines with trees.  The foliage is turning colors also - and there were sections of trees in various shades of yellow and red.  Of course, there are plenty of trees which are still in their green garb, but I bet it won't be long before they turn also.

Tomorrow, we plan to drive around this area a bit before we head to South Dakota or wherever we end up.  Most of the people have been nice, even treating us southerners with a great attitude.  OK, there were a few that don't meet our gentile ways, but I just smiled and moved on whenever we could.

I couldn't stop take pictures today.  Snap, snap, snap.  Lots of them.  Yep, and did I say it was FLAT!
