                                        Crown Point & Vista House on a Summer’s Day

                                              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.

forgotten ways, need, connections…

‘We have almost forgotten how strange a thing it is that so huge and powerful and intelligent an animal as a horse should allow another, and far more feeble animal, to ride upon its back.’ Peter Gray

Ranch in Central Oregon. I have not ridden but one horse in my life. ‘Gumdrop’ was the horse, when I was 8 y/o….we failed to form a connection on a pack trip into the Wallowa Wilderness in Oregon.

passing time…

Edgefield Manor, at one time a poor farm, then a nursing home and now a hotel/eatery. This image hangs on the wall from about 1955, when little old ladies knitted, visited and passed their numbered days.
