A Trip Down Highway 97
I love to ride highway 97 from Rocky Mount toward Hobgood, NC. It has always seemed to me, as I crossed the bridge leaving Rocky Mount, that I was going back in time to the decade of the 1960’s The rural landscape hasn’t changed much as the road takes you through scenic farmland. Soon the road curves and passes the Boseman Farmhouse; rebuilt after the fire about a decade ago. I love the shade trees that surround this beautiful home and at first glance you would really never know it had been totally destroyed by the fire.
Leggett is the next community on the drive and my destination for this particular blog. After passing Big Jim’s gas station my eyes landed on these gondolas all lined up, awaiting the next harvest. I have never asked but I believe these containers are for harvesting peanuts. Eastern NC is a great place to be. It has been my home since 1987.
