We couldn’t see it! That’s in a private property! So you can’t go to see it. Can’t see nothing from the street!!

It is impressive that these structures still stand today. The concept and application behind the construction is truly and amazing feat, And to see these with the mountains as the back drop is awe inspiring.

That were used to store hay. Now abandoned but sweet to see how it was in the very old days. Took some fun pics and enjoyed seeing how it use to be.
