I have snapped this declining structure over the years near The Dalles, Oregon. I have always called it the ‘Tilt House’. Here are three examples over the years.

Wishing you…

a safe, gentle beginning to your week, if you are tucked away. Wishing you strength, courage and focus if you are on the riskier side of life and death right now.

Mt. Hood…

in the Oregon Cascades, east of Portland. Having lived my life in Portland, it is easy to take the scenes of nature for granted….like Hood, St. Helens, the ‘Gorge’, the rivers. Photo from Rock Butte in NE Portland.

Crown Point & the Vista House (Oregon)…

                                              Crown Point (Thor’s Point) 1916 by Fred Kiser

The Vista House was constructed atop Crown Point from 1916-1918. It was a bit controversial because of WWI costs and a sense of frugalness. Construction went forward and the spot, because of the view, attracts many people all year long.
