I've never paid a lot of attention to barns until I became a fan of The Run *A* Round Ranch Report. My friend over there, Teresa, regularly posts pictures of barns, So, on Tuesday when we went after flowers, I drove Tom crazy asking him to pull over so I could get a barn shot!
Monte Vista, Colorado (where we were) is in the San Luis Valley ...surrounded by high mountains,(the La Garitas to the northwest, The San Juans to the west, and the Sangre De Cristos to the east. and bordered on one side by the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The valley is a huge farming area and the main crop is potatoes...supposedly the second largest potato production...just behind Idaho.
and this one even older. There was grass growing on it's roof.
We had a great day seeing the scenery and buying flowers.
