13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
This is a photo of a dilapidated barn near Oakesdale, WA in the Palouse area of south eastern Washington and north central Idaho. The lentil producing hills in the area are known as "the Palouse". The Palouse was caused by a flood 15,000 years ago that flowed from the Missoula, MT area. The barn shows how someones hopes and dreams are now gone.
