Took a road trip this past week from Illinois to Florida for a family reunion on my wife’s side of the family. We had a wonderful time with family, got to do Disney and, enjoyed an incredible Thanksgiving meal with all 37 of us! This all has noting to do with this image, except to say that I did not take many photos on our trip. I am going through my library deleting and organizing and ran across this one. It is one of my favorite places to visit. (WordPress is scrunching everything today, so sorry about the lack of white space.)

I call it the 5 Mile Barn, because it is near 5 Mile Bridge, west of Morris, IL. I have taken lots of images of it (too many perhaps), but since I pass it on my morning rides, I can’t help but feel that it just is calling to be photographed. I was thinking of going down to it, but the summer rains have really caused the weeds and grass to grow. Plus, there was a rather good sized snake skin right near where this was taken that made me wonder who was waiting for me down there!
