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.

Holiday Customs II

A different angle on Jared Johnson’s Yamaha bobber (Holiday Customs).

Grain Elevator

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.

#400 - Rural Disobedience

Sometimes the most mundane things find a way to say so much with so little.

#396 - Peter Skene Ogden State Park

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.

Down by the Dead End

No all who wander are lost, but getting lost in this amazing part of eastern Oregon really isn’t half bad.
