Welcome to Ohio and some Amish country

Since we were coming in to Ohio on some little road, there was, of course, no Welcome to Ohio sign. It didn’t even have striping on the road! 

(You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.)

Lots more farmland, more green, and more rain. There was water setting in the fields in many places in the western side of the state.

We stopped in New Philadelphia, and picked up some brochures regarding the Amish tourism in that area. Sugarcreek has a small area they call their Swiss Village, and it has the world’s largest cuckoo clock. 

We drove through the countryside (in our Jeep) hoping to see the Amish buggies and took a tour of Yoder’s Amish Home.  

We were able to stay at the New Philadelphia Walmart overnight. The next day we took highway 39 to Mansfield and drove through some of the small communities along the highway. We stopped at a large flea market, but it was pretty much like some cheap items we had seen when we were in Quartzsite; disappointing. There were only a few Amish items there.
