Photo of the day .. back road surprises in Small Town USA

I'm a back road kinda gal. Whenever possible I like to stay off the highways, especially when I'm just a passenger. Although (sometimes) more convenient I find highways just too noisy and crowded but most of all, incredibly dull. So back roads it is for me .. gently rolling hills, Small Town USA, historic properties, barns and Farmland Forever and the occasional and unexpected surprise, a.k.a. photo opp!

Today's back road surprise was a real-life Mater, yep, Mater as in Lightning McQueen's buddy, spotted somewhere en route to Gettysburg, PA:

Andrea, that's a great part of the country to ride the back roads.  We've made a bunch of trips up that way on the back roads.  I love it too.  Have a great ride!

I am a back roads kinda girl too.  And like you... I think there are such great finds and eye candy on the less traveled path.

Hi Mike, it sure is and close enough for us to just spontaneously hop in the car and drive up there!

Hi Tammy, when we take a trip somewhere and I'm the passenger, my usual complaint is that there's nothing to see when driving just highways!

Hi Cindy, we always find something to ooh and aah over, plenty of animals for the girls to see... and lots of pretty Real Estate for me :-)

Okay Andrea, how cool is that?  The road less traveled always yields better photos.

Hi Mona, quite unexpected! Funny thing was when I stood there taking pictures, other cars actually turned around to take a closer look, too.

Hi Richard, you never know what you can find. We certainly didn't expect to run into Mater! The girls got a kick out of this one.
