Sierra Valley Barns

If you’ve known me for any length of time, you’ll know one of my favorite places to be is up in Sierra Valley, California. It was a beautiful Saturday (3 March 2012) so we packed the cribbage board and horseshoes and off we went to Portola, Loyalton, Sierraville, Vinton, and Chilcoot.

Here are a few of the barns out in the valley ~ and one house ~ all photographs were taken on March 3rd. I ran them through my Pixlr-o-matic photo editing app (mainly “old”, “metal”, “sand” and “scrap”).

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)

  1. You know, I ALWAYS love your barn photos. :D

  2. Beautiful! There is so much story there! :)

  3. I just love the textures and the absence of industry and people. They look weathered and dignified.

  4. Your photos are lovely. I like the peeling paint :-) We enjoy cribbage too!
