I left early this morning taking a route through Peone Prairie and over Argonne Hill, then following Upriver Drive and the Centennial Trail to work. A few years ago some of the farmland on Peone was divided up to be sold as lots. Then the housing bust happened and "progress" on Peone came to a halt. Now that the economy is picking back up I see a couple of new houses have gone up.
There are still plenty of rusticated views to enjoy, but they will eventually be overwhelmed by the sprawl.
My climb up Bruce Road taking me over Argonne Hill did not go unrewarded. Road find!
Almost forgot. You don't see many farm tractors in residential areas, but I did on the way home today.
