March 4th, cont'd: Center Ridge Rd. to Tygh Ridge

Wheatfields, old Farms and older Buildings. That's all there is here for many miles of gravel Rd.

Long since appreciated old cars

An original 60's Super Duty Ford; a real work truck.
Now "Super Duty"s are just an ugly-grilled Contractor's Pickup Truck or for towing Harleys

The old train route heads West-ish after here towards Rice and Boyd, and then to it's end in Friend.
Notice the windmills to power the pumps in the wells, to fill this old water tank for the last trainstop I'll see today.

I find myself wanting to stay on the East Deschutes Ridge gravel roads, exploring the old Farms and buildings here.

Mt. Hood would be just to the left in this view, on a clearer day,

Classic story here...
"This old house is a POS, honey, why can't we get us one of them new fangled Double-Wides, like the Jones's up the road have"

Just park it next to the old house, and yer done.

Next up: Sherrars Bridge and Falls......
"got no problem with keeping truly roadless areas as wild....
On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
