It seems pretty to me, too
From earlier in the fall
It seems the barn (crib?) is still used to store harvest based on that pipe leading to one of the windows.

Nice images- a little more geography than here.
That's an interesting photo. Cribs usually have bins above the driveway, which are filled through doors on the cupola (the sticky-uppy part in the middle). There will be 3 or 4 hatches in there to fill, and a chute to direct the grain to them.
BTW the "pipe" is an auger, there is a screw inside, driven by the the PTO on the tractor, that pumps the grain to the top. Anyway, I've never seen anyone stick an auger through a window like that. Those things get floppy out there at the end; I imagine it's lots of fun trying to hit that little hole.
I think we were the last people in this area to fill a crib; it's just not worth the effort for the small amount of storage. We tore it down 8 years ago, but it hadn't been used in probably 5 years before that.
Pretty house. Is that cousin Eddie's RV?
Grew up on my uncles farm. We would have called that a "granary" as around here, cribs had openings for air circulation around the corn still on the cob.
Thanks for the information, and for telling me what I'm looking at! I've no idea about the property, I just fly by and take pictures if it look interesting.
Thank you, too.
Elevation of Buttes from left to right . West Butte 6983' , Gold Butte 6512' , East Butte 6958' .
Altitude at KSBX home base 3443'. Some smaller Stand alone buttes in the group altitude not show for Hay Stack and Grassy Butte.
Elevation at farm 3300', the rim beyound on horizon varies from 4000 to 4600' . Sand rock formations run from Canada south along "The Rim".
Appropriate image for today, I think

More farm storage
It seems barns are photogenic after being neglected, but it is too late to save them.

Flying home yesterday over the Rockies. Very pretty scenery.

Very nice. I was hoping to have a Jan 1 image for today, but weather.
So, you guys make clouds? All joking aside, it's interesting how the heat from your stacks punch through the layer in the third picture.
Near Chehalis, Washington:
Thanks! I got a pretty nice video of landing in Provo too. The ending is cool with the mountains in the background.
Here's an old (July 1987) photo of the proving ground of the Caterpillar Tractor Co., then located about 25 miles west of Phoenix AZ. Old sectional charts marked this pattern as a visual landmark with the label "Cat Tracks".
There's a little more to the story of this photo.
The photo was taken on my very first visit to Phoenix. I was living in Southern California, and rented a C-172P at Van Nuys to fly to PHX on a business trip. Around the time I started the descent for the ILS to runway 8, I noticed the words "Caterpillar Tractor Co." carved in the sand below. I thought that was kinda cool, so I snapped a quick photo.
The Caterpillar proving ground is gone now. The area has been annexed by the City of Buckeye, and developed into a master-planned community called Verrado.
Last week we moved into our newly-built home in Verrado, located in the middle of the photo I took by chance on that hot July day 33 years ago. Who'da thunk it?
Go down to Tucson and take pics of the newer proving grounds.
Is that snow or ice on what appears to be a lake?
Cool story. Looks like some of the roads were made for the city. Funny how fate works.
This is the closest I could come to duplicating the OP image in Google Earth. I'd take the present-day comparison photo myself, but the airspace has changed too. It's busy Class B now.
The one major street that seems to follow the old Cat tracks is Indian School Road, the east-west street with the gentle S-curve in the upper third of the photo.
Thanks for the "after" image. Interesting there is a Heritage District there. I'd hope there are some old Caterpiller products there.
Here is some more history if anyone is interested:
Where are they? I've never seen them.
West of Green Valley back by the mines. They have a customer demonstration center back there and then they use the mines to prove out equipment.
Wow, Pilawt. I believe you've set a new standard. Not just an aerial photo, but photojournalism.
It's interesting how nature is taking back what was once its own.
Fascinating stages of decay not only in the barn, but also the fences, windmill, and machinery.
True, it makes it look interesting. I think the barn is still in use, perhaps for animals. It looks like the farmer is cleaning the decayed parts.
I think they play card games in this barn, such as bridge, whist, or hearts
There are animals sometimes near that building, so I think it is a barn.

Seen better days...

Hey, Greenhead. I flew over your place of employment (twice) last Thursday. No pictures, but it was a bunch clearer then.
Building a bridge. I suppose there is a pipe so the temporary crossing isn't a dam.

I'm sorry I missed this question last year.
Canon 7D2, Sigma 50-500, usually ~1500' AGL. That' still not high enough to clear some of the towers.
Nice flying last weekend

Long XC from FL to CA this week but some nice scenery along the way.
