Something about deserted or abandoned buildings seems to speak to people. I'm not sure why so many are attracted to something so lonely. Maybe they identify with the mood of something being left behind. We saw this old barn next to a gas station / mini mart where we stopped in the middle of nowhere as a pit stop.
I'm not 100% sure this barn was abandoned, but it certainly appears that way from the outside. It was across the street from the land you see in the header photo. It was definitely not a commercial area, but we were grateful for that one mini mart that had a public restroom on a long highway. Everything around it was agricultural land.
The barn below is a bit closer to home. It belonged to the old York Mountian Winery in Templeton, California.
The winery was sold a couple of years ago to Epoch Winery. Although they are trying to preserve the history of York Winery, one of the first in our north county, they recently tore down the barn. They replaced it with this one.
This barn is not deserted. Sam and other horses live there.
What do you feel when you see an abandoned barn?
