This is the scene Hubby and I came upon as we left the Cass Scenic Railroad State Park last month. We rounded a curve and I saw the barns and asked him to find a place to pull off of the two lane road. He really only could pull over on the berm so I took these rather quickly. It was early morning and the sky was white and overcast with a little fog.You're probably wondering what that big dish is in the center of the photos. The dish is at the center of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank West Virginia. This radio telescope is the largest fully steerable dish in the world. I zoomed in as much as I could to capture the barn above. I love the cupolas.My camera couldn't bring in the back barn quite as well but it was enough to bring out the green and white silo and all the rolls of hay.The barns on the opposite side of the field were harder to get close shots of. It's hard to say whether they were all part of one farm or two. I zoomed in one the dish for a better view. We had passed the observatory on our way to Cass but didn't stop to visit. If you look closely you'll see a smaller dish to the left of the larger one.I little farther down the road I happened to look out the back window on the drivers side of the Jeep and saw another view. We stopped to get this view as well. One day we plan to visit and take the tour.
