There are a lot of interesting barns dying slowly across the countryside. This one is in central Missouri.
This barn used native lumber. You can tell by all the knots and the exterior contour and roughness of the wood. Its owner must want the barn to last a little longer, with a decent sheet metal roof. If the roof is good, most barns can hang on.
This barn is in Iowa and stands alone. I grabbed the picture as we drove by in the rig. It was somewhat more appealing from the end view. There are many barns to capture, but riding in a big rig makes it difficult to get a good shot. Stopping is usually not at option.
We are home now after a great trip of exploring. We will hit the road again in a couple of months!
