Oh, the places you’ve been!
Well, maybe not. This old boat isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. But I do enjoy the new paint scheme the forest is applying…
This old tractor was found in the woods near Highway 26, with a small forest of young trees growing up all around (and through) it. It’s kind of amazing how well the green paint has stood the test of time, considering how old this thing is!
It’s time to head out east again, looking for old dry ghosts…
I love Eastern Oregon. This wood is completely weathered out from the intense dryness and brutal, constant sun. I noticed the face in this board, looking somewhat like a whale. Portrait, taken.
