Fences from our Blue Ridge Parkway trip

Hi Everyone.  I sure hope you're having a good week.  Today I'm sharing more pictures of our Blue Ridge trip.  These are from the Mabry Mill Exhibit I've posted about before.  This exhibit features how folks lived in these mountains back in the 1800s to the 30s.

 Here are fence boards being dried out before using.
 Sorry this is sideways...Why oh why does Blogger do this to photos!!!  Anyway, its one of many fences on the property.  I like how you can see the wiring around the posts which is holding the planed boards in place.  The boards were sawed in the mill, too.







This last one is of another exhibit of an old homestead, but the fence is beautiful....at least to my eye.
Linking up, and urging you to hop on over to Good Fences at the Run Around Ranch Report and check out what cool fences others have captured this week.

Until next time.....................

  7. Very interesting fences, and they lasted a lot longer than most of the ones built today. Go figure!
