Mt. Zion - more from July 4th



Mt. Zion is a few miles away from Appleton and we always go there too.  
Sugar Creek runs by this old church and cemetery.



My handsome hubby on the swinging bridge a couple of years ago.



My mother on the bridge this year.  I didn't think she would walk across it.


One of my favorite shots from a couple of years ago.  These cows live next door to the church.



We also go wading.  At least our feet get cooled off.  I would like to just lay down in the water.

i really love all shots. my fav is the cow shot. smart to hang out under the tree. so warm here. nuts. (:

Sandra said...

i can't even pick a favorite today. I LOVE THEM ALL. the cows are pretty close to number one though. that church is almost identical to Shiloh church in GA where my dad and his family went back in the early 1900's. i would NOT walk on that bridge, brave family, but i would love to wade in that creek.

I love that old swinging bridge. You mom is so cute standing on it. Love the photo of the cows too. Looks like a cool place to visit.

These are great rural pictures Amy. I love the cow photo. I hope you soon get some relief from the heat and get rain too. Blessings, Pamela

Lovely old church - I love those peaked roofs and white clapboard. Sweet looking cows and inviting creek. The swinging bridge? No, thank you!!

This looks like such a relaxing place! Love the photos and the portraits are really wonderful. I have a hard time shooting people for some reason. Hope you have a delightful weekend.

That creek looks like the place I need to be right now... it's 110 here & oh so very miserable!!!
That really is a great shot of the cows, love the branch framing the shot =)

The church pulled me in. The bridge kept me here. My gosh that is some terrific bridge.

Is Appleton, Appleton, WI? I lived in Rhinelander when I was a child and remember a world very like the one you show here.

Annie said...

Oops. I take it back. I'm looking at your red building post now. It's Appleton, TN. LOL on me. :-)

I really like all of these, but I LOVE the cows in the shade shot.

That's a great bridge - and so brave of your mom to cross it. All the photos are nice, but that cow one should be framed and on a wall! What a truly beautiful photo. And living in Wisconsin, I'm partial to cows. That setting reminds me of the pasture at the farm where I grew up.

Cheri said...

Loved your photos Amy. I love old churches.

Kathy said...

Loved seeing your personal photos!

I love the old churches like that. The bridge is really nice! You don't see many of those.

Roan said...

What a nice place to visit. Love that swinging bridge. I would cross it, but would be a little nervous.

Roan said...

...and a really nice old church!

Your photos are really nice! Love the swinging bridge. I also like the darker background against your photos. I might change my blog background!

Love everything about this post. You certainly do have a handsome husband. Your Mother reminds me of mine. She would have walked that bridge as well.

I would have been tempted to get my clothes wet in that creek. I always have my water shoes in the car this time of year. When in the country it's easy to find a low spot to wade in.

Marie said...

A sweet little church! And I love the shot of your Mom crossing the swinging bridge!
