Look how they match the landscape on their side of the road!

    The photo (video) is not up on here yet but is to the right. After seeing it all I could think of was what a beautiful piece of photography!

    Three words – AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Listen to the words –

  2. Glenda says:

    they are great, but not fun to stack for the winter – sure hope the farmer as has a bale wagon to pick them up and stack them

    So Cool!! The round bales are the ones we had all over Wyoming. I think one round bale got our horses through most of the winter. Totally beautiful to see out there on the plains.

  4. MN Roxanne says:

    Love the scenery Matt… great shots…

  5. Karen Too says:

    Excellent, and unusual, observation as usual, Matt.

    The square ones are easier for one person to pick up for feeding purposes, or at least that’s how we used them for horses, etc. They stack well on the back of a truck, and then can be tossed out while driving through a field, etc.

  6. Jeff says:

    welcome back video. square bales just look better then round….but round are more functional, right?

  7. Candice in Alabama says:

    Circles to the right, Rectangles to the left!

    I hear the wind – how’s the hat brim Matt!

    Take care!

    Good little morning chuckle! Nice!

  9. katzien in austin says:

    Oh wow! What a view! I know you’re walking but those mountains don’t look like they’re getting any closer. ;-)

  10. Norwood says:

    Apparently the farmer with the round bales does not follow the new guidelines set by the Farm Security Administration in that all farm animals shall be alotted 3 square meals a day. He should really be ashamed.

  11. JuJu says:

    I believe the round bales of hay are illegal…because the cows can’t get a square meal…

    Thought you might like that concept…

    Been enjoying your trip pictures this afternoon. So many new shoes on the trip–no need for new tires on your cart?

    Keep on trekking on!
