Yesterday I drove from Chicago to Minneapolis, where my parents will be moving in July. They live out east now, but, with the move to the Twin Cities, they will be nearer my younger sister and her family. I’m worried about their move–they’re elderly–so I’m here mainly to inform myself about where they’ll be living and to understand whether anything can be done to smooth their transition.
I drove up alone, so there wasn’t a lot of opportunity for photography, but I did stop to make a phone call at a rest area an hour or so above the Dells. Looking around, I happened to see this remarkable barn. If you enlarge the picture, you can see it better. It has a tower which I suppose was used for loading wheat or hay onto or off of wagons.
It was a beautiful drive up through Wisconsin. The fields are turning green, with the crops coming up in healthy, even rows.
