This time, instead of just passing by at a distance, we took [I think it was] CTH Q , in order to get a closer look. I am so glad we did! This barn is a beauty. I love the cow pictures on the south side (above), the cupolas, and the two little stone additions, probably milk houses. I'm thinking that the one in the photo above is the original, with the other one being the newer milk house.
I believe that this is the east end of the barn. Maybe this is the newer milk house, for it would be closer to the road, easier access for the milk hauler. I suppose if I were willing to be really [intentionally] annoying, I could have knocked on the door and interviewed the owners. I don't like to do that. It's not that I don't like to talk to people. If they were in the grocery store and I couldn't find the Greek yogurt, I might actually ask whomever was nearby, then talk about the weather, grocery shopping, etc. But that's different. This seems more personal. Now if they had been standing outdoors, looking like they had nothing to do but answer silly questions from curious passersby, I would have felt more comfortable about asking them. But they weren't.
Aren't you glad we got that settled?
Wouldn't kids enjoy the top of that milk house as a playhouse? I sure would have. Even now!
This is what we usually see when we 'fly' by on Hwy 53. I snapped this while we were going 65 mph. Right. I wasn't driving.
Doesn't the end of this barn look a little like Charlie Brown?
This barn is located NE of Rice Lake, WI. Definitely in the bleak mid-winter. Can't you feel the cold looking at that photo! It is cold. Miserably cold. We're all ready for winter to go away.
And now for a peek at
