away for the weekend: barn charm - hiding in the forest

barn charm - hiding in the forest

Winter is shaping up to be a busy season at Away
We're in a good spot for skiing and snow sports and hosting weekend getaways.


Last weekend was unseasonably warm and foggy - 
which made for some pretty interesting skiing, and very cool views atop Bromley mountain.
The Appalachian Trail passes through here.

I didn't get out with my camera as I thought I might,
but then I remembered that a couple of weeks ago I had found this barn hidden among the trees.
The red door jumped out at me.


The barn is connected to a pretty white farmhouse,
as is fairly common in Northern New England.


And I love the way it's nestled in the mountain forest.


Next weekend I plan to do a little more exploring -
my archive of barns is nearly depleted (yikes!)



And - as always -
Thanks for dropping in!

  2. You remind me of days long ago when I skied with my family at Bromley and Stratton. I remember foggy winters and deep chill. It is frigid just now in CO, so the snow is dry and sugary - we just don't have quite enough of to to make me happy!

  5. I love the foggy photo! And the red door on the barn really pops. You could almost miss the barn if it wasn't for the door.

  10. That first landscape shot is a lovely winter scene!
    'The Red Door' - sounds like a novel title and the shots through the woods suggest a mystery theme. :) Yes, sometimes my imagination runs away with me!
    I love the shots!

  11. lol, Carletta! I had the same type of thinking....that the red door was to draw attention, to beckon visitors inside...and then! What would be next when isolated in the woods? I think I've watched too many movies!

    Great shot, by the way....and I do love the red door!

  12. What you capture in the foggy scene is the exact same thing that happened here last week. The only difference is you that managed to get a photo of it. Now I wish I had done the same.

  19. What a fun barn find, Karen! Maybe someone painted the barn doors red just to be ornery. It sure makes for a charming winter barn capture. Good luck on your barn exploration.
