As we were making our way up to Washington this last June, moving some of our belongings into our new home, I started noticing how many barns I was seeing. I love barns and the fact that so many of the wood ones are disappearing is such a tragedy to me. So I started capturing pictures of them, again through the truck windows (as you can see above). Many are a little blurred (you should see how many I deleted! oops!) And many of them have windshield glare, but I hope that you enjoy the sites as much as I do. Most of these are in western Oregon.
I know that you can barely see this picture, but I included it anyhow, because of the large American flag that was painted on the roof. Unfortunately, I had a hard time getting this much of a picture driving by so quickly. I hope that you can make out most of it.
I found another one of the flag, when we were coming up to it. It really took my breath away!
I had to catch this old building that had the look of a General Store.
We also came across of of these metal sculptures. This one is a dragon.
This barn is slowly sinking, and the brush is taking it over now.
OK, it is getting dark now, and I still have the glare on the windshield. But I hope that you still enjoyed seeing some of the barns that I found through our trip up western Oregon.
For good measure, I am adding a barn from a house that we had wanted to buy (we were too late for this one, already sold) but had the greatest barn!
Thanks for stopping by, and take care!
