Ghost towns of central Oregon

I would like to preface this post with a promise that we did not take anything from these sites, except for pictures for our memories. It’s important to respect the people from the past and the people who remain.

Adam and I went on a tour of ghost towns of central Oregon.

Shoe tree
This was the second shoe tree we saw on this trip. The other was between Shaniko and Kent on Highway 97 (and much smaller than this behemoth). I like this photo because Adam had taken his shoes off in the car and it was too much work to put them on again to get out and view the shoe tree.

A rare thing

But worth the wait

It’s always cold and often rainy, but I love the Oregon coast.
