RV parks are, most usually, very unexciting places to visit. Most are glorified parking lots, but a few have some redeeming qualities (for instance, at the moment, Cory and I are parked on a horse ranch in Indiana). We aren’t in RV parks too often, since they’re mostly miserable, but I wanted to share some photos from the place we stayed in Farmington.
Mom & Pop’s RV Park is run by Dennis Ryan, an 81-year-old who happens to be an industrious figurine sculptor. The park office is a tiny corner in his toy workshop, and he displays his creations in glass cases – both for sale and for show. Check out this article on Pop’s miniatures.
The best part, though, is the railroad track he has set up in the front yard. The miniature settings start with the homesteading of the Wild West, and move forward in history to iconic “Main Street” images.

I love this scene - the man and the boy in the same pose, and the little dog desperately wanting a bite!
Not all is pleasant in this town - this fine German establishment has been in a terrible accident. Or was it arson?
Writing, eating, loving, laughing, and enjoying where life takes me.
