Foley Mine on Deschutes River (Oregon)

Photography Begs Questions: Foley Water’s Old Mine

The MIne Foley Waters SwittersB

What Was the Deal?

I have found zip about this old mind shaft I photographed this September along the Foley Water of the Deschutes River (Oregon).  I don’t believe I ever heard the story about it years ago when I first was pointed toward this spot by Harry Teel. Never thought to ask either later. Someone’s effort to mine and all that attendant work…wow… that must have been quite the task given the location. But, that’s mining. If someday, someone happens along here and is well versed in the history of who mined there on the Foley Water…please share.

Peru Copper Mine Slurry Spills from Broken Pipe

“Most of the injured had joined in efforts to prevent liquid copper slurry from reaching a nearby river after the pipeline linking the Antamina copper mine to the coast ruptured last week in the village…”

Hole In The Rock (Nature’s, Man’s or Faery’s Drill Bit?)

An almost perfect hole bored down into a river rock. DReed

I am always fascinated by the unique shapes found in nature off the beaten path. Was this hole caused by man in some logging or mining operation along this remote stretch of stream? Was it a result of  volcanic activity or some erosional influence when the rock was vulnerable? Some might even think there is some underworld/other world influence here…a window toward faeries. Above is a hole in a rock in a remote spot along a stream. It captures the imagination for long enough to snap a photo.

Coal & the American West by Paul K Anderson

Buried away in an email account I had not checked in sometime was an impressive bit of work sent to me by long time friend Tom Anderson. He flew the plane while his brother Paul took photographs showing the effects of coal mining upon the landscape.

 Once inside Paul K. Anderson’s Site…also, look at ‘About’ and gaze upon that amazing shot Paul and Tom captured of the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone near Old Faithful. Paul resides in Washington and Tom in Montana. My apologies Tom for not catching this sooner.
