Photos: Old barns in Skagit county

Photos by Lee Lageschulte

There's something so poignant about falling-down barns. They used to be full of life and activity and now they are slowly, painfully falling into ruin.

When I see the photos, I can feel the sun, hear the bees buzzing, and hear the sounds of the cows and goats that used to inhabit the barns.

In my imagination, I leave out the hay bales in favor of something that I'm not allergic to, but I can hear the sounds of children, playing in the loft - whether they were supposed to be up there or not.

Sadly, decaying barns are all over the country. This group is in Skagit county. Lee found them when she went up to see the tulips.
