mc gough revisited
This barn was discovered while driving the country roads west of here on a sunny but cold afternoon. Photographic excursions to the McGough Road barn involve parking the car on a small pull-in at a landscapers field about an 1/8 of a mile away. From there I can walk the yellow line down the middle of the blacktop road, with nothing but the sound of wind and birds chirping in the trees.
McGough is not a well traveled road and approaching cars from the south are visible for a mile or so. Just behind the barn is a sharp turn to the east. I've yet to see4 a car approach from that direction.
The quiet and peaceful nature of this spot is unparalled. It's nature at it's most serene. It difficult though, to imagine the barn during its prime. But it's still beautiful in that divinely downslide. I often wonder what will signal the death knell for this barn - a lightning strike perhaps?
