2020—The Round Barn

Many of the barns and outbuildings in the Palouse are weathered and dilapidated. Their paint is crackled and their roofs are often missing shingles. Not the round barn we found along our travels. This is quite a beautiful structure, well maintained, and its shape is unusual, especially for a barn. It reminded me of another round barn in the town where I grew up, Santa Rosa, California’s iconic Fountaingrove round barn. It was a landmark and was one of the hundreds of structures destroyed in the Tubbs Fire in 2017.
