Old Abandoned Farmhouse
After leaving Spruce Forest Artisan Village we headed East on old Route 40. That is when we across this old abandoned and collapsing farm house. I had seen it before from the Interstate and always thought that this building would be interesting to photograph. So, I did.

I don't know the story behind this house but I know that it has been abandoned for a long time. If it were not for the people living nearby and being able to see me, I was tempted to go and see how far inside I could get.
My wife helped me to think better of it and of the photos that I took this was the only one that I really liked. It gives you an idea of what it may have looked at one time as well as how time has taken its toll as it is slowly collapsing in on itself. Just like the past as it fades away.
Well, that's it. I made four photo stops, drove 105 miles, stayed on side and back roads, ate a DQ Blizzard lunch and a wonderful full buffet supper and still got home in time to sit on the back porch and watch the sun go down on the day.
BTW, this all took place just on this past Memorial Day. I have in mind another road trip again using old Route 40 - the first National Road - and it just might happen in the very near future. Can't wait to see what photos may come from that trip... :-)
