Trees, Sky and Clouds

Trees, Sky and Clouds 1

A final set of images from my visit to Fort Churchill, these showing the line of trees kept alive by the meager waters of the Carson River.

Nevada Skies

Nevada Skies 1

These are more shots from Fort Churchill State Park, Nevada. (see previous post) These images are more about the sky and clouds than the ruins of the old fort. I was lucky enough to visit just as a storm was blowing across the Sierra Nevada … lucky for photography, not so lucky with strong winds blowing dust and dirt.

Details of Fort Churchill

Fort Churchill Detail 1

Fort Churchill State Park is located south of Silver Springs, Nevada along the Carson River. It was originally an army supply base and provided some logistic support for the surrounding area. When the railroad came through, the need for the base disappeared and it was abandoned. It is now a state park and the buildings are maintained to keep them from further deterioration … but they are not restored.

Cedarville, California

Cedarville, California

The Cressler and Bonner building in Cedarville is one of the original buildings in the area. The area being in the northeast corner of California in Surprise Valley. I was cutting through on my way into northwest Nevada and was surprised to find this nice little farming community.

Goose Lake

Goose Lake

Goose Lake is in the very northeast corner of California, just south of Lakeview, Oregon. There isn’t much water these days … although in the winter/early spring there can be a very shallow covering (some years). You can see a small patch of water in the far right corner.
