EDDD 19; Ghost Camp and A Walk in the Woods

5 Comments

To continue from my photo tour in EDDD 18 post…We explored a gravel state road that is gated, and rarely open. Listened and watched a variety of birds and got a cool shot of a nest. Not sure what the state does up here, but there were several areas that they dumped fill material like cement, asphalt, old cement drainage pipes, and other misc items. There are some cuts in the cliffs where you can see history in layers of various sediments. We were only about 1/8 of a mile from the beach, on the other side of the highway.

The dark photo of trees shows that all the trees around are covered in ivy, so much that only the very tops of the actual tree are visible. There is a photo of a piece of asphalt with linoleum on it and Mother Nature taking over that too.

Further along the same highway there is what remains of an old camp, maybe for vacationing fisher people, maybe for cranberry pickers. I call it the Ghost camp. Man, the stories it could tell, I bet! I’d guess the cabins were built 1920-40. Mother nature is reclaiming them, and she does it like a real artist. I was in photo junkie heaven. I hope to go back on a day when the marine layer is heavy, for that eerie look, ya know?

I included a mushroom and some cool white fungi/moss?

As soon as I can, I will put the whole series up at my photo site. For now, I hope you enjoy these samples.

Thank you for stopping by.

  1. Amazing. There’s something about ruined buildings that just draws me in. I find them fascinating, whether they’re burned, rotting, or just abandoned. Thanks for sharing these.

  2. My favorite is the vine and leaf covered roof. Snow melted here. Brown and foggy, but still beautiful. Melted snow and rain makes for wet walks and full creeks.

We would love to know what your thoughts are!
