A Real Life See Rock City Barn

photo will supersize for additional detail

Have you ever seen one of the SEE ROCK CITY barns?

I saw one on our way home from Chattanooga
but it was just off the side of a very busy interstate
with no place to pull over for picture taking.

I've also see the one shown above
 just outside Murphy, North Carolina.

Here it is taken from a bit further away.

Gotta love that Ruby Falls sign.

(both attractions are located on Lookout Mountain)

I also think the chevron design of the barn's 
weathered gray siding is very striking.

This was the view as we pulled off the highway.
(the one that runs along the left side of the photo)

Finding a barn like this "in the wild"
 might not seem exciting to some people,
but it was an awesome experience for me.

If you are out and about and happen to spot
be sure to stop and get photos.

They are such a part of our cultural history.

All four of these photos were taken from a moving car's window -
I especially love this old broken but still useful barn.

These barns are all in the Shenandoah Valley area
near Harrisonburg, VA.

This barn with its red sliding doors
intrigues both Eunice and yours truly.

THANK YOU, Eunice!!
