Barn on D
It sounds like the title of a musical composition, doesn't it.
Anyway, it refers to Highway D in Barron County, WI
This barn has many components that appeal to me: Stone silo base, rusty roof, weathered wood, glass block windows, green roof, and it's within five miles. The not-looking-too-stable part doesn't appeal to me, but then again, it's what happens to barns in this climate that go unheated during the long winter. Once all those warm cow bodies are no longer keeping up the interior barn temperature, the ravages of our harsh winters take their toll on the foundations, and the barns begin their descent to destruction. Very few owners can afford to pay taxes on those structures, let alone keep them heated just for olde time's sake.

Not a care in the world.
Only an occasional pang of sympathy for those mega-dairy cows who never see pasture.
