Medina County Foliage Tour

We took in part of the tour stops. This farm also has a saw dust business but they had a lot of old tractors and machines on display too. Old truck and large steer.

This is an old fashion wire tie hay baler. It runs off a pulley on the side of an old tractor with a very wide belt. Hubby does not know what they call it. They poked the wire through in front of the bale and it came around the back and they twisted it to secure the bale.

Old modified tractor built locally.

There was an pioneer encampment at one of our local parks and these are the pictures from there. These are spirit catchers and are very beautiful.

Lady dress for the time back then. More a town lady rather than a farmers wife.

This man was drying meat near his fire.

They had carriage rides and there were 2 different teams.

2 of the kids with the group.

Firs hanging to dry, I think.

Indian tee pee. There was an Indian sitting in front of it tell the history of the Indians in this area.

More skins laid out to dry or as they would have to sell them.

Old fashion chuck wagon. This is how they carried their food and ten set up for meals.


  1. Looks like you had a beautiful day for the tours, Tudy. Lots and lots of neat stuff to see!

  2. This looks so fun - so glad you got out to enjoy a gorgeous day! LOVE that teepee - we used to have one when my boys were small, we wanted to paint it but never got around to it. They just loved that thing, it was huge!

  3. I thought about going on the Wayne County tour over the weekend but it didn't work out. Maybe next year.

  4. It was so beautiful this weekend we went for a motorcycle ride to a few of the spots loved Buckeye woods first time we've gone on one happy we did was fun!!

  5. Sounds like a great tour. So much to see. I love visiting places like this.
