Roadside Relic: Horse Barn

 Once home to lean and lovely horses, this derelict barn is rapidly returning to the earth.  Although the nearby pond is now covered in green algae, during the hottest days of summer  the algae bloom turns crimson.

Roadside Relic: the Dairy Bar

All that's left of this dairy bar is the sign and the circular drive.  Located on one of the county's original east-west corridors, this drive-up ice cream fountain provided relief for travelers in the non-air-conditioned past.  The advent of freeways took away the traffic, and the customers.  Now, the road is little more than a scenic two-lane to be taken when you're not in a hurry.  Gee, I wish I had some ice cream.
