Long ago, someone made a structure out of the plentiful, nearby lava rock. It looks like that didn’t work out very well, because it now lays about in ruin. I don’t think it was a cabin, but it had windows and at least two doorways. The rock still resting on top of this doorway is one of the last ones standing.
Interior image of a long lost roof, likely once a stable part of a farmer or rancher’s home. This is out in Eastern Oregon near the Ochoco National Forest. There were obviously a few tenants around still making use of the structure, but they weren’t up for talk about the matter; most of them just flew off when I approached. The rest scurried underground.
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 Peter Skene Ogden State Park is intense, for such a simple park. Located 9 miles (14 km) north of Redmond along on U.S. Route 97, the vertical basalt cliffs and river canyons are just ridiculously steep! There are three bridges crossing the canyon: one for pedestrians, the Highway 97 bridge, and the historic Crooked River High Bridge which is now closed to vehicles.
