This old structure is East of Portland, Oregon near the town of The Dalles. The area is exposed to harsh winds and all the varieties of moisture the Pacific NW has to offer. Somehow the building still stands. We have been visiting this site for 35 years and little changes….a good thing.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be
satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
