Rural America: As seen from the window of a U-Haul

Three long days in the passenger seat of a U-Haul has it's advantages and disadvantages. The biggest disadvantage, a bruised tail bone. I swear it has been a month and I am still 'broken'. When they say COMFORT ride DON'T believe them. But enough of that I am sure you don't want to hear my tail end woes.
The major advantage was that unlike the many times I have been in the driver seat, this time I was able to enjoy the scenery and even get some sweet shots without stopping.
I always love the rural photos and barn photos posted by TexWisGirl, Nancy  and Madge so on this trip I was watching specifically for cool looking old barns. Here are a few that caught my attention.

I was really drawn to the dome shaped building. I do wish it hadn't been tucked way so far from the highway. Below I cropped it so that it can be seen a bit easier.

Okay, so what can I say other than while going through Saint Louis I couldn't resit a shot or two that included boats and bridges.

Today I am linking up with Madge's rural blog hop

You captured some great old barns on your trip Nita.

I do hope your tailbone feels better. That has to be very aggravating! Thanks so much for stopping by today. xo
