Downtown Carson City, Nevada, Wednesday Night


Photos From My Latest Trip, Batch A


Colliding Rivers near Glide, Oregon, where Little River and the North Umpqua River meet head-on. There's a photo on the bridge where I was standing showing the confluence looking like a maelstrom in the winter, with water up over the bridge (covering all the rocks you see here!). I went swimming a little downriver, it was co-o-ld, but refreshing on a hot day.

Birdhouse at Bellknap Hot Springs, on the Mckenzie River in central Oregon.
Cost $8 for an hour to use the facilities, mainly a large pool with temperature of 95-100F. A lovely place. The temp. of water coming from the springs is about 190F.
I'm trying to contact the guy who makes these, to get a few for our collection of mini houses.


Ricky B, who does antique and vintage car restorations in Prineville, Oregon, has created a miniature ghost town. as shown in these 3 photos.
It's a uniquely delightful place. Everything Ricky does, both autos and vintage building, is remarkable.

Ricky has at least 30 cars, all immaculately detailed. Most are standard models, but this is a wicked hot rod, I believe a 1951 Mercury, chopped and channelled to perfection.

I'm frustrated by having such a dorky layout, due  to Blogger.com parameters. I don't have the skills (coding) or time to make these posts look other than awkward. So, for a while (until I can get my layouts together), it'll have to be the singer, not the song…

Back Home From Oregon, Nevada + the Instagram Factor

Got back at 3 AM Thursday morning, having left Elko 15 hours earlier. Not straight-thru driving, by any means (I dawdle), but a long day nevertheless. A great trip, rich in adventure and new territory. Once again, I have the problem of too much "content." I could do a small book on each trip, but each time I  return home, I get immersed in the details of running a publishing house, and having to work on a more standard sized book.
For example, I could do some really nice small books on travels to SE Asia, to Scotland, and this latest cruise through California's two sister states.
My blog is bit of a hodgepodge these days, what with doing Instagram (because of its immediacy and ease), and other time constraints. If you haven't figured it out, all the posts with the captions written up as headlines are automatic posts from Instagram to the blog. Not elegant, but it's the best I can do right now.
You can view my Instagram posts at www.instagram.com/lloyd.kahn. This way you can see the videos, which don't get transferred to the blog.
I'll put up some photos (I shot about 450, between the iPhone (6S Plus) and Olympus OM-D) from the trip on the next post.

Little granary near Burns, Oregon


 
As pointed out by Rick, the studs are on the outside here; I presume so that the interior walls are smooth for storage of grain.
