Thy Days are Numbered

Here's an example of the plight faced by many grand old barns across rural America. They are becoming relics and offer little practicality in today's farming world.

Upkeep and insurance are costly matters. This particular barn from Western Montana collapsed about three weeks after this shot was taken.
