Cedar Creek Grist Mill…

in SW Washington State. Built in 1876. Historic landmark was/is the only water powered grain mill in Washington. Still operational on a small basis to demonstrate how grain was turned into flour in the day. Peaceful setting.

Dorothea Lange…

anyone admire her work as much as Shorpy and I do?

September 1939. “On the road with her family one month from South Dakota. Tulelake, Siskiyou County, Calif.” Photo by (one of my favorites) Dorothea Lange. Check out Shorpy’s for vintage photography.

                                              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.
