It rose like a keep from the ruins of an ancient castle. There was a majestic presence and a girth that made this silo a special find. Pat’s husband had told her about the location of a wooden silo, so we set out in search of this rarity. What we found was a silo nearly twice the diameter of most silos made of curved wood planks. It was hard to discern the type of wood, but Pat noted that it was probably cedar or cyprus wood to protect against rot. The silo looked like it had never been painted. This only added to the beauty. During the same excursion I photographed a few other skyward finds.
