From the Archives: Ghost Town Road Trip

Here are the remains of an old Model T Ford car in Granite, Oregon. What was once a booming gold mining town in the Blue Mountains near the turn of the century, Granite is now home to just a handful of people. I spent some time here checking out the local history and I was captivated by the beauty of this area.

A few other shots from the area:

Yeah, we got the same problem 'round here too

I was very tempted to buy this nice 40x60 bridge but it wouldn't fit in the car
