May 31, 2015: Johnson Farms Barn, just north of Mapleton | Jane Boursaw Photo, 2015

Our “home barn” just north of Mapleton has been photographed and painted a lot from the front, but while two-tracking with Mom after church today, I noticed how beautiful the backside of the barn is. My dad always took good care of the barn, and now my brother, Dean Johnson, is continuing the tradition.

And it’s been so lovely having horses in the barn again, thanks to Lori Gilbert and other neighbors (who also take very good care of the barn – thank you!).
