Daily dose of calm. • Find this everyday, even if only for five minutes. Close your eyes and let yourself relax. It’s important to work very hard in life but it’s also important to take breaks. I took this photo a while back, 2014 I believe, but it still gives me a strong sense of calm every time I see it. I hope it does the same for you, even if only for a few minutes. • • #southdakotaphotographer#midwestphotographer#badlandsphotographer #southdakotanice #westernphotographer #relax #gooutside #southdakotafields #southdakotaagriculture #farmlifephotography #colorsandsounds #thephotosinbetween #cottoncandysunsets #fields #slowdown #farmphotography #harvest #southdakotaprairie #hifromsd #calm #soothing

Montana is dotted with the coolest, historic barns and this round barn has always been one of my favorites! This barn is a historic landmark in Montana because it was training grounds to Spokane, the horse that WON the Kentucky Derby in 1889! Keep reading below for more history! • {MONTANA} • As Dorothy said, there’s no place like home. We all have a unique view of the world from our little corner of Planet Earth.

Next up: @thesewildlings • {HISTORY} Bayer’s Barn was built in 1881 by a rancher and miner in Southwestern Montana. He built this barn with such quality as the horses he trained there. His dream was to one day win the Kentucky Derby with one of his horses. This magnificent structure still stands 3 stories high! ‘The ground floor housed the race horses and quarters for his groomsmen/trainers. The second floor held grain and hay and the third floor held a water tank that a windmill atop the roof filled for a pressurized water system.’ In 1889, the horseman took one of his three-year-old horses, named Spokane, who he trained in the barn to the race and WON the mile and a half race, putting Montana on the map for derby fans. The ranch was eventually sold and the historic landmark faced the elements until new owners bought it in 1932. The iconic barn has been renamed “The Round Barn at Twin Bridges” and has been completely rehabilitated. It took two years of tedious construction to get it to its current day splendor. This beautifully constructed, historic barn still sits at the base of the Tobacco Root mountains in Twin Bridges, Montana and is now used as a gorgeous wedding/event venue. It has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
