Eight Mile School



We set out on a rainy Oregon day and headed to the east side of Mt Hood, hoping for a break in the rain. We came across this abandoned one room schoolhouse at just the right time. Just north of Dufur, Oregon, Eight Mile School was built in 1904 and now sits alone and empty in the middle of a plot of farmland.

(PS) I was selected as a finalist in the Top 100 category for the Photo of the Year contest I entered shortly after New Years! Take a moment to vote! http://bit.ly/1zHjoVd - My photo is:
