Day 8 Northbrook, IL to Cuyahoga Falls, OH

We stopped here for a visit with Kathy's parents. The terrain is not as flat, although there are still vast amounts of corn. Everywhere. Corn. Who knew? We've seen corn fields across multiple states now.  Miles and miles of it. It is being harvested as we pass through. Even though I realize how many people there are in the world, it's still hard to fathom that much corn actually being used. Corn starch, corn syrup, feed, corn meal, corn as corn (what a concept!). It's mind boggling.

The last two stops have been visits with family, but today we will be heading to an adventure other than the road trip itself. We are seeing some fall color, still mostly gold with a bit of red, but we are about a week late for the Big Fall Show. It's all good!  The weather has been In the high 60s/low 70s, but that will change today. Time to bundle up a bit!

A couple of color shots

The place where we had breakfast (Georgey V's) had an art display  from one of the local schools (can't remember if it was high school or junior high). I was intrigued by the masks, but all their art is great. So glad to see this being encouraged!

And again we're off! Tune in tomorrow to find out where it is that we had to bundle up.

 Thanks for stopping by!
