Barn Charm - 10/16/2012


Well, it's kinda like a barn! ;-)

We took a trip to Ruidoso, New Mexico this past weekend to visit one of Jerry's buddies and his wife and attend the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium. We also had the opportunity to do a little sightseeing around this beautiful part of New Mexico.

These pictures are of the stables and silos at historic Fort Stanton. The fort was built in 1855 and served as a military fortification, a tuberculosis hospital and a WWII internment camp.


I absolutely love these silos! There was a wall around the stables and silos so I had to take pictures as best I could.


Linking up with Barn Charm.

The barn is interesting wit hall it's doors and windows. I also like it's dark barn wood color.

Great photos! Those silos are amazing.

I've actually been to Ruidoso! My in-laws live in Carlsbad and we visited them a few years ago. Of course we had to go to the casino and horse races so we took a day trip to Ruidoso. It was so beautiful!

I love taking photos of old barns. It seems that they are all along busy roads and I am too afraid to stop and photograph them.
