  1. That old barn and Caddy is quickly becoming a Lincoln Highway icon. So much so that it at first bothered me that someone would mess up the tableau by parking a modern boat there. Then I noticed other changes. Crops come and go, of course, so the frame is always changing but the car itself has been moved. Was it moved away from the barn door so someone could get inside? Maybe it was moved just to confound and entertain us roadie types. Suddenly the boat didn't bother me any more. This may indeed be an icon but it's not a dead one.

  2. Although I have never visited this particular site, it is the juxtaposition of old with new that is so intriguing to me. I did a double-take as this shot reminded me very much of a farm in Lodgepole, Nebraska. Indeed, the icon is not a dead one.
