We left western Pennsylvania heading home to Virginia's Shenandoah Valley by way of Maryland and West Virginia.
 
I on the back of the Harley snapping drive-by photos of barns
 
 
 
 
 
and the emerging Autumn scenery.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Fritz arguing with the GPS lady
 
 

 
 
 who wanted us to do this
 
 
 
 
 
instead of this.
 
 
 
 

{Fritz won}
 

We are back on the farm safe, but perhaps not so sound in a few folks minds.
 
1280 miles complete.
 
I can't wait to do it again.

That's a bunch of miles on the back of a motorcycle, but I sure wouldn't mind trying it at least once... what an experience!

Beautiful scenery, for sure, & lovin the barns & fall colors!

I'm also lovin the Happy Barn Charmiversary... I'm just not creative enough to think of something like that! Kudos to you & thanks so much for joining =)

Love your barn photos . . . Love your trip tutorial . . . And you have made traveling 1200 miles on a Harley seem like "the best time" ever!

Jeannelle said...

All the photos are great! I dream of taking a trip on a motorcycle but it will never happen.

Debbie said...

Lovely barn collage and spectacular scenery! I take a lot of drive-by shots, but I would think from the back of a Harley it would be a little more challenging, although no windows or posts to get in the way. That GPS lady knows nothing--Fritz was absolutely right! We always choose the backroads if we are given a choice.

Congratulations -- that's not as easy as it sounds. I know from experience.

Gorgeous images -- what a great time of year to make this trip.

I love all your images, but I love, love the barns!! I can't believe you're able to take such great images from the back of your bike!! Looks like you've been through some beautiful country!!

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Gorgeous images!!!
I have a board on Pinterest just for barns. Love the scenery from my home state of SW Pennsylvania! Such fond memories. Have never seen it on the back of a Harley though! Looks like fun!
