One of the more recent grain elevators out in Eastern Oregon. When I say recent, I mean less than one hundred or so years old. The really old ones were made out of wood, and were absolute behemoths. These metal-sided containers are still pretty massive, but not nearly as cool. Hey, I’ll take a photo of it for the archives though.
The buildings were empty, silent save for the whistling of wind through their bones. But the sky and placement of the clouds convinced me: this place is not yet entirely forgotten.
I first came across this bit of desolation near Kent, OR back in 2012.
This old homestead has a great face to it, despite the years.
One of the loneliest piles of garbage I’ve ever seen… I had to get a photo once I noticed the hawk in the background.
I still haven’t figured out what this is… combine part? Old buggy suspension? Any ideas?
