Day 42 - Harley Road, near Middletown

Another beautiful fall day is in the books.  To take advantage of it, I decided to make one trip suffice for two.  So I took a ride out into western Frederick County to Middletown to check out a studio tour that I read about in the newspaper.  Featured artists were Linda Harrison-Parsons, Marilu Tousignaut, Homer Yost, and Tracy Tousignaut-Reed.

I am also coordinating a photo contest for the Rural Roads Program of Frederick County, and Country Pleasures Farm, where the studio tour was located, is on one of the gravel roads that is eligible for the contest.  After looking at the art in the beautiful barn that was built for such events, I walked the grounds of the farm and then took off down Harley Road.  My second purpose today was to promote the contest via my camera club's Facebook page.

The rules of the photo contest require that a portion of the gravel road upon which the photo was taken appears within the photo.  I included the gravel road in some of today's photos.

The "Fine Arts in the Valley" studio tour continues next weekend.  It can be found on Facebook, as well.

It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful the area is in which I live.  I may travel to and admire other places, but Frederick County is now home, and I know I will never tire of it.
