Grandeur of the Mountain

Magestic Heights

We only had 3 days to explore Mt. Rainier on our last visit to Washington, and unfortunately, 2 of these were overcast, and impossible to see the higher peaks of the mountain. However, on our last day, the skies cleared and we were treated to this full view of the majesty of the mountain.

What makes antique things cool? The Bear’s Mill in Greenville / Arcanum, Ohio, has a collection of antiques and I just couldn’t have been more happy to take pictures of them. I don’t think the effect would be quite as nice with a bunch of those plastic Rite-Aid baskets… And yet, that’s basically what these are…

Storefront

This was the store-front of the Gulf filling station I posted a week or so ago. Although it wasn’t in use, someone had went to some pains to create a semi-authentic display. I liked the reflections in the glass and the old motor oil cans in this shot.

I can’t look at this picture and not get that feeling like I’m starting to fall over sideways… Something about all the angles and depth in the Chicago Cultural Center… man, I just have to look away. Open it up in large size and see if you get the same feeling…

She Thinks my Tractors Sexy

If Xzibit lived in the early 1900’s, and television was invented at that time, he so would have pimped this ride.

This shot was taken from the beach area at Bahia Honda State Park. The old rail-bridge is mostly deteriorated to the point where pedestrian traffic is no longer permitted, however, the park maintains a section (shown at the left here) that you can walk up and view the center portion (which is mostly crumbled and rusted).

The Bunkers of Fort Worden

The Last Ascent

The old military compound at Fort Worden has a very eerie feeling to it. These bunkers looked more like gas chambers or something when we first came opon them. In reality though, they are massive gun bunkers where large caliber guns can be hidden until they need to be used; at which time they are cranked up through the celing of the bunker to this spot where they can be aimed at enemy vessels in the sound.
