Vacation Barns - these pictures were taken while on vacation
In Plain,Wa - lupines blooming alongside a road, in front of a barn.
Plain is north of Leavenworth, WA, in the mountains, near Lake Wenatchee - but not near the town of Wenatachee, WA. The state wanted to name the town Lake Wenatchee but the town folks thought they would be confused with the other town, Wenatchee, WA and tourists would miss their town. So they asked the state to give them a different name - they said, "Just a plain name would do" - and so the town became Plain, WA - perhaps because the state officials were a little miffed at the town people for protesting the originally planned name.
And irises in front of another barn
This barn is in Eastern Washington - with the old fashioned advertising sign painted on the end of the barn.
