Routt County Barns - 10-23-20

Friday, October 23, 2020

We have been a farming and ranching community since the area was settled by folks who stayed through the winter, so we have our share of old barns:



Lake Catamount Ranch is home to the barn above, which is on the historic places register. Jami Patrick captured the small red barn close to the Yampa River as you drive into town:



Cyndi Marlowe also has an eye for barns:





Jeff Welton stopped to snap a photo of the brilliant sunrise behind an old barn:



These old barns have seen LOTS of sunrises, like the famous Steamboat barn with Mt. Werner in the background:



And lots of sunsets:



And continue to add to the charm of our valley!

DH is planning to do the last mow on the lawn today - snow predicted for the weekend and winter temperatures will come with it. Locals are scrambling around doing whatever outdoors projects they can while we still have a couple days before the weather deteriorates. Chances are the snow won't stick, but hopefully it will knock down some of the fires going on in Colorado right now!
