barn charm - pennsylvania revisited

I managed to make a couple small strides in my holiday preparations -
but I won't bore you with that right now.

I remember as a teenager making my first car trip across the state of Pennsylvania.
I also remember how beautiful I thought the valleys and farms were.
That hasn't changed.


I've photographed so many Vermont barns, that when I was visiting Pennsylvania a couple of weeks ago, I was struck by how open and vast the landscape seems in comparison.


And the barns are so large - and beautifully maintained.



This scene seems so far removed from our snowy weekend in the Green Mountains.
Hopefully I'll get those pictures together to share later this week.
For now - I'm joining Tricia at Bluff Area Daily for a little Barn Charm.




Thanks for dropping in!

  8. Vermont, Pennsylvania, Texas - no matter where we go we're fascinated by beautiful barns. I think it takes us back to our roots, don't you?
