Photographs of Ohio Factories, Farms and Businesses by Trucker Mike: Page 1

To OHIO, Page 2

Ohio's economy is pretty equally divided between industry and agriculture. The land ranges from low and fairly level in the north and west to rolling hills in the east and south.  I. 77 and I. 75 cut through the state from north to south, I. 70 and I.80 from west to east, and I.71 slices diagonally from the northeast to the southwest.   Note: Copy and save any of the photos from this site FREE or purchase larger, printable photographs for a modest fee.

Old farm in Bethlehem, in north-central Ohio. Off-shoot of Lake Erie near Lorain, OH. I picked up 4000 lb. sacks of minerals at white bldg. on the left.

Limestone quarry off I.75, northwest Ohio.

I.80 is a toll road for most of the width of Ohio.  Some trucking companies do not like to pay tolls, so if the driver does not want to pay out of his own pocket, he (she) is forced to use alternative routes such as US224, US250, US20, US30, US6 and the like.  Two-thirds of these roads are two-lane country roads, winding through small towns, following property lines, crossing ungated railroad tracks.  The scenery is pleasant, but this is not the way to make good time on the road.  Here are some scenes from rural Ohio. 

Welcome to Willard, Ohio. Country road-US.250, northcentral Ohio. Snow-covered US 20, western Ohio.
