I took my favorite Kanuga bicycle ride today, which goes mostly through a river valley (so is quite flat!).
There is more corn planted this year--I wonder if there is an ethanol plant in the area or just a higher price.
There is still some traditional culture around.
But so much sprawl--the large machines below seemed to be building a golf course.
The apple orchard is still there--old trees pruned as if they were espaliered, so old that the branches sag and then the young branches grow upward.
A lovely 30 miles.
