Taking the Backroads: Old, Abandoned Barn
A few weeks ago, I traveled to Salina, Kansas, about two and a half hours west of Kansas City. After about an hour on the fast, but boring, I-70, I exited onto the 56 mile long Native Stone Scenic Byway through Shawnee and Wabaunsee Counties. This “One Thing, Three Ways” post is of an old, abandoned barn I encountered along my way.
Unlike most of the barns I’ve been able to walk inside — because most abandoned barns have “No Tresspassing” signs posted — this one had a tack room full of harnesses and other gear.
What do you think? Do you have a favorite below?

This is a tough one because they’re all great! I really love #2 though :).
Thanks, Loony! I have to head that direction at the end of the month to take my son to a summer program at K-State. I hope the weather will be more cooperative next time and I can take additional backroads on my journey there and home.
