It was great to get back out there shooting after a month-long hiatus from roaming the countrysides. The air was brisk, clouds abundant and an occasional snow flurry would burst out from the sky to mix it up a bit. There was no shortage of our usual fav’s – barns, old cars, rusted metal and the ever-present barbed wire and fence posts. It was all quite familiar and relaxing traversing the back roads of Goodhue, Olmsted, and Fillmore counties with my special lady – chasing the light and all things shiny.
The final destination for this early March Saturday was Preston, MN and the Jailhouse Inn. If you’ve never been, I would highly recommend. John and Lois have a wonderful B&B nestled in the picturesque Root River valley. There are a handful of nice restaurants in the Preston/Lanesboro area to have dinner, but go early or be prepared to wait. Every resident of the tri-county area seemed to be in town for dinner that Saturday evening. I should have known this having grown up in small town america. You can also opt for a tasty pizza pie at Chics Pizza, which we did; I didn’t want to risk a case of the hangries.
