Muskingum River Barns

 We found these beauties between the railroad tracks and the Muskingum River in Ohio
Township 32 between Marietta & Lowell Ohio
Township Road 32 between Marietta Ohio & Lowell Ohio
I think I like the B&W shot best

Smokie Mountains

These barns/structures are located behind the Qualla Visitor Center near the North Carolina end of Newfound Gap Road.  The buildings were all on land from which the park was formed.  The buildings were all  relocated to this spot then restored.

Wyoming Barns & Buildings

All these barns were photographed through the window of a U-Haul Truck while I was riding or driving along Interstate 81 in Wyoming.

 This one, below, seems to be defying gravity.
 This one looks to be pretty tight; well, other than the holes in the roof.
 It was interesting to me that abandoned barns still stand, highly visible in the flat, arid landscape.

Here in West Virginia they would each be overgrown to the point of invisibility if not already toppled from the moisture and growth.  Once a West Virginia barn hits the ground, it soon takes the journey  back to the earth until little may be seen other than nails and hinges rusting into their elemental state.
