Forlorn But Not Forgotten

Last November I splurged and took a 4 day trip from home, thru some parts of eastern Arkansas and back to home. It was a great trip that I wish I could do similar trips more often. I was between paying jobs and my husband was off working as he does often.

Since the areas I went thru were largely rural, I found so many old barns, houses, and unidentifiable buildings along my way. They just thoroughly intrigue me – the history that has played out in those structures now unattended and unused. At one time they held the heartbeat of rural America.

Now I didn’t know precisely where I was when I took these photos but I do know that I was in Arkansas …

Bridges: Taking Us Where We Need To Go In Life

They say never to burn your bridges as you don’t know when you will need to cross them again. Here are a few photos of some beautiful bridges in some neat and pretty places – Portland, OR, Rogers, AR, Multnomah Falls, OR, Superior, MT, and off the Yukon train rail in Alaska. And it is part of the Sunday Stills Challenge of Bridges.
