Looking southwest. This area has been taken over by invaders. Reed Canary Grass owns all of the lower land that floods seasonally--blackberries don't tolerate it. All of the higher ground is blackberry domain. This 50's era barn was built on piled up dirt and apparently long ago abandoned. The blackberries on this pile have abundant sun, moist soil and a nice scaffold to grow on. This mass is over 20' tall.
