With happy serendipity I also happened upon these tumbling down sheds that aren't visible from the highway.
When one of my favorite barns in Chinese Camp burned down a few years back I started taking pics of the old barns around Tuolumne County. Most are from the Gold Rush era and without lots of tender loving care they are falling down. The harsh winter of 2011-2012 sure took a toll. I better get out for another barn ride before this winter attacks!
