Happy New Year! I hope you all have a productive (and fun) 2016 as well.
Carhartt makes some pretty solid pants. But when you hike in the early am, they quickly get damp from all the dew. So I dried ’em off by the fire.
This is not the most efficient method, unless fun is your ultimate goal. Then this works really well.
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.
