Sometimes the most mundane things find a way to say so much with so little.
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.
No all who wander are lost, but getting lost in this amazing part of eastern Oregon really isn’t half bad.
Grain elevator in Eastern Oregon.
Seen in LA sometime back in 2007. I don’t know if it was actually Banksy’s work, but it sure looks like it.
Likewise, this amazing grain elevator was confirmed to have been dismantled since I last checked in on it. Dang biggest structure for miles around, and I never even got to look at the inside!
I first came across this bit of desolation near Kent, OR back in 2012.
