Dirt Surfing

This old abandoned house looks like it’s surfing on the soft dirt swell beneath it.

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.

Which way to the Egress?

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.

And The Landlord Taketh Away

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.

The Dry Spell in Shaniko

This fire hydrant has seen better days. Heck, the town of Shaniko has seen better days. But dry and slow as it might be now, it sure is still purty.
