Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

During the 440-mile, round-trip route traveled two or three times a week by Chris Brower, of Uncle Johns Farm Stand, in his trusty F250 with 335,000-plus miles, he focused on making images of some of the many vehicles used in various parts of the raising and harvesting of produce in the Grand Valley. From a 1929 International flatbed pickup truck to a 1955 International Harvester flatbed, all manner of trucks and tractors pull heavy duty, hauling produce, farm workers, equipment and livestock to the areas they need to be.
