Highway 412 runs from Lexington to Jackson. I've had to make a few trips along this route in the last couple of months, most of them doctor related. Fortunately, that is done for a while. Along many of those trips my eye was drawn to this spot, specifically the building that has been taken over by kudzu and the large, ominous sycamore trees that seem to be swallowing it all up. Made a slight detour on my way back from Lake Graham last Sunday specifically so that my camera could be pointed at this scene.

Not sure how long the building has been abandoned, but it has to have been a pretty long time as the walls are falling down and it's incredibly hard to tell where the building ends and plant life starts. That is what makes it so intriguing to me, however, the questions behind the it.

And the sycamore trees are just beautiful. There's a pretty deep drop off right behind the building that the shorter trees live in - they're not really shorter, just not on the same plane as the tree in the foreground. It really is a cool landscape!
