Four Old Friends Are Gone

For many years, I have returned to this group of trees standing watch over a field along Yohne Road in rural southwest Allen County just east of Fox Island nature preserve and the National Serv-All Landfill. On the morning of September 2, I drove past them for the first time in a month, and they were gone! Construction machines were tearing a gigantic hole in the earth over the entire field, so that the huge dump can expand to the south. I have many more photographs of them to add as I get the negatives printed. For now, these five will have to serve as a tribute to these old friends.
