I recently drove I-90 through part of North Dakota heading to Bismarck to see family and the birth of my newest granddaughter - meet Emma Grace. We had a bit of a rough start, so here she is being held by Daddy in NICU.



Along the way, though, I was struck by how many old barns and deserted farms there were (amongst the drilling rigs). I wanted to stop and get some pictures but was under request not to 'dilly-dally'. On the way home though I did get the barn from a distance & driving up further, I found I could get into the yard but it was drizzly and my car was parked on the shoulder of the interstate so I walked just a bit up the hill to get a shot at the house and the rusted remains of a truck...that I still haven't been able to edit to my satisfaction. Are you out of breath reading that long, incorrect sentence? I'm really going to need to go back when 'dilly-dallying' is an option :). I wonder what the chances are of being arrested for trespassing? Why are these places always behind fences??

This is the barn:

Great old place! I had a research project maybe 20 or so years ago to study old German-Russian homesteads in western North Dakota, and it was really fascinating stuff.
