Barns of Idaho 3

Valdez Grain Terminals as seen from Dock Point Trail. Early August 2006

Now I know these are grain silos and not barns. Valdez has grain silos without a farm in sight. Built after the pipeline to hold Delta barley when the deal fell through. The voters of Valdez could have had a ski resort on Sugarloaf Mountain or the grain terminals. The grain terminals meant jobs right away so it won out. Too BAD! The ski resort would have been great in the long run and helped the winter economy.

Lots of barns in Wisconsin too. They may be pretty on the outside but they sure do stink on the inside!
