Harvest Tour 2012: Scenes from Franklin County

Harvest Tour 2012 was jam-packed with things to see, places to go, and folks to meet. For a rural county (Franklin) with a small town (Hampton) as its seat, there was a whole lot to photograph. Here are a few photos that didn’t make it into my previous blog posts about Harvest Tour 2012, but still deserve a mention.

Towle Cemetery at sunset. It’s Franklin County’s first cemetery and now sits on property owned by the During family.

This grain bin is just like the many that were sent by Iowa-based Global Compassion Network to Haiti as emergency housing following the devastating earthquake in January 2010. It is known as a SafeTHome.

My family’s trip to Harvest Tour 2012 in Franklin County, Iowa – including our stay at Country Heritage B&B – was sponsored by Franklin County Farm Bureau, Latham Hi-Tech Seeds, and Franklin County Tourism. All words, thoughts, and opinions, as always, are my own.

    This is such a great time of year in the Midwest. Your photos bring back some memories. Lucia certainly seem happy with her pumpkin. Nice!

      I agree, Cathy. Fall in the Midwest is spectacular – my favorite time of year! Lucia loves that little pumpkin 🙂
