Antelope Fire Department Truck

Antelope Oregon Fire Department Truck Under Sunset Skies

A few weeks ago I made a pit stop in the mostly deserted town of Antelope, Oregon. The town only houses less than 50 people now. This old Antelope Fire Department truck was parked behind the school (which I posted about here), and made a perfect foreground to the pink sunset skies above.

A Typical Creek in Oregon

Horsetail Creek, Columbia River Gorge Oregon

This is such commonplace scene, I almost did not save the photo. This is what any number of ordinary Oregon creeks and streams looks like. The crystal clear water, lush greenery, and moss covered rocks are something that we in the Pacific Northwest take such advantage of. We forget that we are so very lucky.

Locust Grove Church

Locust Grove Church, Wasco Oregon

I injured myself two weekends ago (believe it or not, it was NOT while hunting a perfect photo position, but just out enjoying a warm, sunny day!). Unfortunately, I have not been able to get out and capture anything new. Luckily, I still have some photos to share from recent adventures, and hope to be back on my feet by next weekend so I can get out and take something. I am feeling all out of sorts having not taken any photos in over two weeks!

This is Locust Grove Church, located outside of Wasco, Oregon. There used to be a whole community called Locust Grove, but it is now consists of only this old abandoned church and a few old homesteads. The church was built back in 1895 and was used until 1914. It has sat empty on private property this whole time.
