Country Rust - Old Rusty Barn Doors

three sliding barn doors rusted to a beautiful russet patina
It was our first day driving.  We started out from northern Colorado and headed south on our way to Sedona, Arizona. We had packed our cooler with tasty munchies and just gone over Raton Pass into New Mexico.  It was time to satisfy our hunger and take a break when we saw a dirt road heading off the highway.  So of course being the adventurers we are we turned off to explore and search for a shady spot for lunch. We did not find that shade, but we did find this abandoned old barn with a set of three rusty metal doors. Who could resist!
