This is a guest post from Kim Taylor of Discovered Dereliction, who was kind enough to share some photos from an adventure in South Dakota.
This solemn beauty is near Vale, South Dakota. I discovered it on one of my numerous back road trips looking to capture the many wonders of the Dakotas.
This former farm home is sitting all alone, down a dirt road, close to a town with approximately 150 people. I absolutely love this area with all of its tough people and gorgeous landscapes. It’s a photog’s dream in any season. I went for miles and miles seeing no houses, then “bam!” there one would be – just sitting there all by itself and beckoning to me.
I totally believe in the “Take only a picture and leave only a footprint” mentality when seeking these old time treasures. I always take my noble faithful canine companion, Gabby, so she can spot check the areas for hazards. She seems to love photo treasure hunting as much as I do!
