Leaning Barn in North Carolina

Back roads are a wonderful place in the Appalachians. The rewards are little treasures that escape most peoples vision because they opt for the faster four lane highway. I was in the North Carolina mountains when I came upon the Appalachian version of The Leaning Tower of Pisa. It isn't as grand but makes up for it with simple beauty. This small barn is made from hemlock which never seems to rot but weathers to a rich brown color rather than the cold gray most commonly seen.
