Barns of Highway 195

Continuing on our trip from Spokane to Pullman, Washington, on Highway 195, this barn was all by itself in a wheat field. It may have served its purpose, or maybe it's still used to store or protect the large equipment needed to plant and harvest hay and grain. The peaked metal roof looks newer than the peeling wood sides.


The open doors and windows made me think of the old saying, "It's too late to lock the barn door after the horse has been stolen." -- Margy

  4. There you go again highlighting the differences in our language! We say - there's no point shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted x

  7. Fran - We are always doing this to each other, eh?

    Kay - It has been a long time since we were in Alberta, but I think you are right.

    Paul - We don't have too many barns do we.

    Lorie - You are so right.
