Very nice images of the site and I like the stable too. Looks like you got a "selfie" in the first one!

I did get a selfie, the fisheye insisted on it, I tried in vain to move my shadow out of the pic but I couldn't change the direction of the sun. 😊

The stable was used (by the family that brewed the beer) to stable the horses used for transportation and pulling the wagons.

WOW, very cool pics.
I've never seen trees like this before with those unreal super long branches.
What are they?

Some of the branches grew in so much shade that some did grow very long. Due to the extended drought we have been experienced yr after yr, trees and bushes have died off exposing these very long branches. Some of the branches are actually vines that are the size of branches. What a lot of visitors don't know is that what they think are 'long tree branches are actually very old growth wild grape vines or eeeek very large poison ivy vines. Some of the crazy long branches may be of an oak variety and some were wild grape vine. I tried not to walk through the poison ivy. The poison ivy vines actually make roots that hold onto the tree it's growing up but the grape vines just twine around the branches and don't hold themselves to the tree with rootlets. That is one way to tell because touching the poison ivy vines can cause itching too.
