Another road trip - this time out to Acme, WA - and what a treasure of barns they have
Before getting to Acme we stopped and got a picture of this barn with the Sisters in the background - always a wonderful farm photo.
It used to be a tradition to paint advertising signs on the end of barns - and on our way to Acme we always pass this barn - recently painted and advertising a restaurant that is five and a half miles down the road - we'll have to schedule our trips out that way so we can stop for lunch. I hear that the food is very good.

A newly built barn, in the style that is very popular here. That shape is called a Dutch Barn - it has a Gambrel Roof - the bulge in the middle of the roof - which allows for much more storage space for hay than a traditionally sloped roof. This area was heavily settled by the Dutch and their influence is still seen today in the barns.
There are many Christmas Tree farms in our area - you can pick the one you like and cut it yourself. This one is in front of a really nice old barn with a new roof.
