Wonderful photos! I love that barn and silos! It looks beautiful there...but you said its still cold right now. Did you get any snow?

WOW! This is an awesome collection of pictures. What a beautiful place to hike. Bud and I hike all the time so I can appreciate the nice trails and the understandable trail signs. Some of the fence gates look to be collector’s items. The landscape is so lush and green. I would love to be out there with my camera. genie

I need technical advice, when I try to post photos, most of the time, I get this.

Lesley said...

I would not have expected so many, and such a variety, of fences on a hike..

Judy said...

That is a lot of fences, and all different! How far did you walk? I love the barn!

Joe Todd said...

The whole hike up and back would only be about 3 miles.. Really not much in the way of fence but sure a lot of gates.
