Isn't this part of the Amity Mine. In the Ochoco Mts. close to the Blue Ridge Mine. If so, the site was "remediated" a few years ago (as were the Independent, Mother Lode, Blue Ridge, etc.). Adits all closed, ore bin pushed over, not too much left to see.

Michael - why is it so desolate here? Have pine forests been cut down? Or the high altitude? FAV from Heather.

Great shot - I LIKE this area very much ! Greetings from Austria, Ingrid

This is a Wishrum Tribe (North of Dalles) style Rock Art popular around 2000 years ago. Why a pregnant woman and family were up here was probably collecting and drying local salmon in creek; and they used to make the runs clear up to bates area with all season salmon runs. Why the pregnant woman died will never be known However, I assume her mother and family painted rock white and then detailed red to tell story/Prayers for local spirits to take her and baby straight up to Great Spirit in stars.

Thanks, for the nudge...I knew the fee had gone up but I hadn't thought to update it on this photo. I appreciate the head's up! cheers, scott

This school was built by my great grandfather Arthur Blunt in 1917. He lost a considerable amount of money in the endeavor. Terrific stonework.

Great capture Skomra. Good to get outta PDX once in a while, isn't it?!

Right you are, thanks! (I changed my photo title from "salamander" to "newt".) cheers, scott

The place was bad, They tried to run off anyone they didn't know, myself included. Now it is looking great! Nice photo. Heading there in mid March.

I have been enjoying your pictures. I spent years in the desert around wild burros. To some folks, like me, a tiny error jumps out at us when it is about our stuff! Not wanting to offend Id like to point out that these can be called burros, asses, donkeys or even Desert Canaries, but they aren't mules. Technically a 'mule' is a cross between two different species, such as a horse and donkey. There are flowers that are mules! You shouldn't expect to see herds of wild mules because they don't reproduce much in the wild. I 'spose it could happen once inna while though. It is fun to hear the jackasses greet the sun early in the morning when they make their distinctive bray. You can hear it for a mile or more. But then I reflect on how damaging they are to both desert plants and animals. Without predators they simply keep multiplying beyond the ability of the land to support them.
