Goshen County Farm

Cistern cover and outbuilding at an abandoned farm in Goshen County, Wyoming.  March 2012

I visited this abandoned farm on the Van Tassell Road in Goshen County, Wyoming, a number of years ago while on my way to the Black Hills and have always wanted to return.  Ed Sherline and I stopped here earlier in March while we were on our Eastern Wyoming weekend road trip.  This particular farm is just a mile or so north of an abandoned school that used to have a room full of old books, which have since been removed--hopefully to a good home.  The most unique feature of this farm is the wooden cistern cover (above).  I also love the white paint that stands out in contrast to the stark landscape and gray clouds to the east.  I plan to experiment with monochrome versions of some of these images, but I like the golden color of the grass too.  The attic in the white outbuilding is full of glass jars of all sizes.  Why?
