A "two-fer"

Driving east on Highway 110 in Mendota Heights just north of Eagan, I discovered this old gray barn and a newer red barn next to it. I met Linda there, too. See other "Barn Charm" photos here.

  1. I can see why a new red barn is necessary, but there"s a certain charm about the old structure.

  9. I'm amazed at the numbers of old dilapidated buildings that are just simply abandoned...there are a surprising amount of them up here in the Eastern Sierras of California...and like this, oftentimes there's a new building right next to the old one...a charming venue for photography....
