In Amish country, an unpaved road

Palmer Road runs off Marshall Road in Ridgeway

RIDGEWAY – We’ve run a few features on unpaved roads in Orleans County in the past month.

But this little obsession actually started months ago. The first time I stopped to take a picture of one of these roads was late in the summer. I was on Marshall Road in Yates and entered Ridgeway when I noticed the dirt road to the east.

I took a couple pictures of Palmer Road and wondered then if there were many more of these roads in the county.

I would have posted these photos earlier but I just found the pictures today after going through my memory cards. (I’m accumulating quite a collection of these.)

I’ve received a lot of tips about these roads and will try to hunt them down in the coming months.
