Tuesday I received a Happy New Year email with this note.
You might remember Shuey’s well viewed Barred Owl Post from March 2012
“It’s been awhile since I’ve seen something in this category that was worth a U-turn and a stop.
I spotted this one while returning on a rainy day from “The Last Ride of the Year” which I go to every year to see some of my long distance riding friends. I was between rain clouds and the contrasts of light and shadow really caught my eye. Not in the picture, but off to the right, set much further back from the road, was a nice double-wide trailer. I’m guessing this building was the original family homestead now abandoned with a descendent family still living on the property. Whether this old house is kept for the memories or it’s just to expensive to tear down . . . who knows. Definitely worth a stop. I’ll bet this building could tell a story or two if it could talk.”
Google Street view from 2016 shows a building in much better shape
