Off of hwy 140 into some ranching area. It was a great day, not too warm, very crisp and clear as a late Spring, early Summer day can be. I specifically focussed on the image in the smallest mirror, for an aded nice effect.
Traditional American windmill, closer to the East fork of the Black Rock Desert. Check the writing and bulletholes.
Same windmill, postcard style overview. Notice the nice looking sky... I can't help but be amazed about how beautiful that day was. It was worth the hassle of my pickup breaking down.
Right at the North edge of the East fork of the Black Rock Desert. It was flat and to the "left" you could look as far as the eye could reach. It was quite amazing and somewhat intimidating. A friendly rancher in a huge ford diesel pickup stopped to have a chat, informing me about the locals, who is friendly and who's not, the lady who lives 20 miles "up that dirt road", who was also from my then hometown in Oregon, you know... the usual ;-) But really, I almost always meet very friendly and helpful people in this type of country, for obvious reasons.
Same location, different angle...
Further West on hwy 140, one can see both Nevada (leftish), Oregon (straight ahead and rightish) and california (leftish straight). Nice ridge there, lots of car wrecks if you look directly down... ;-) Also before the ridge I saw whole group of genuine cowboys, that is ranch labourors on horses ready to drive cattle. Besides the wild donkeys, that really was quite interesting, and for me at least, rather unusual.
Nice quiet secluded trail North of Port Orford, Oregon. Nice looking natural bridge, an unnamed but worthy waterfall runs down the beach from this height, close by. So many such gems you find in that coastal region...
