Abandoned, Forgotten. Something some do not know about me is, I have a passion for photographing the past. We run into many things that have been forgotten, towns,vehicles,mines, many things that I have to photograph. It is a want to, but it is also a have too. This car was found in a field, could not see it from the road. Near a old abandoned mine. We found a old decrepit log cabin too.

Giving Chase

Photo by MrsRoadRunner . : photography... | Gather

Giving Chase. This photographs shows that Mr∕Mrs. Coyote was either following us, or it may have had a den near by. To close to be just a accident running into him∕her. Maybe the coyote was just curious about us Now if this was a bear or cougar I would be a little more concerned.

Clark's Nutcracker Flying

Clark's Nutcracker Flying. I waited for this bird to fly to get this. Since I read up about this bird, it makes sense the squirrel and this Clark's Nutcracker were fighting, they both eat pine seeds.

Shelter

Shelter. We ran across this purely by our curiosity about the trees we seen in this very remote spot. There had to be a water source so we made our way to the water source, then found this. Someone is clearly using this as a residence either full time or part time. We take nothing, but Guy did carry the skinning knife around with him until we left, he put it back. Just to be on the safe side. I talk about the adventures we have..... This structure was not built by someone who has never done it before, it did not look like.
