Perfect Shot: Big Red Barn

Photos by Gino De Grandis

Built in 1892, the iconic red barn in La Honda Creek Open Space Preserve immediately catches the eye on the drive between Skyline Boulevard and La Honda. Not surprisingly, the landmark structure is also a source of inspiration for artists and photographers, including PUNCH’s Gino De Grandis, who frequently travels Highway 84 over to the coast.
