IN THE PAST THREE YEARS, I’ve traveled through the heart of central Wisconsin often enough to know where I might see the Amish.
Between Coloma and Wautoma is a prime location for spotting Amish farms and maybe even a buggy, especially on a Sunday, the day these folks gather to worship in homes.
On our most recent trip to Wisconsin, my husband and I, for the first time, encountered an Amish man guiding a horse-pulled wagon along the shoulder of Wisconsin State Highway 21 by the Mecan River Fishery Area.
Truthfully, I felt nervous watching him journey along this busy stretch of highway heavy with semi truck and other traffic.
I could only hope drivers would see him and that his horses wouldn’t spook.
How about you? Have you ever encountered Amish along a roadway and worried about their safety?
