Prairie City, Oregon: Abandoned

Abandoned property across from the site where we stayed in Prairie City, OR. Interestingly, this property is adjacent to the cemetery that I posted previously. I wonder if the spirits from the cemetery drove the inhabitants of this property away?

Prairie City, OR.

After leaving Weiser, ID. we drove to Prairie City, OR. The campsite was on the grounds of the local museum and adjacent to a pasture of sorts and a cemetery. It was nice to have full hookups after dry camping in Weiser. As we drove across central Oregon the haze from forest fires was everywhere, it seemed. We had our grandkids with us so they kept us on our toes. There favorite spot was the cemetery across the street. I had to corral them before dusk as they wanted to read every headstone. Burial sites dating back to Civil War days. The cemetery was located across a narrow road and was the highest point in the area. The dead got the best real estate!

Seaside Slough

A marker honoring those who served and a glimpse of the slough as it curves its way around the town. Since we were in Seaside during the week of July 4th it seemed appropriate to acknowledge past veterans.

A week from  today we are casting off the lines of the Mothership and taking a journey to Weiser, ID. to view the eclipse . Very scenic area along the Oregon/Idaho border and the Snake River. We will be there three days, dry camping ( kind of roughing it) along with a horde of other folks headed to that area to view the eclipse for 2:07 minutes!

PS: my apologies for a less than exciting blog this summer. I hope the Idaho voyage will make up for things. Health issues have impacted daily life as well as travel plans.

Marsh

The place where we dock the Mothership in Seaside is to the west of the slough. I’ve posted a few images of the slough, previously. Between the campground/dock and the slough is a marshy area that is mostly inaccessible. There are a couple of openings in the brush along the road to get a glimpse of the marsh. Very quiet, peaceful spot.
