Simansho Oregon: Warm Springs Indian Reservation

This photo is of the Simansho Presbyterian Mission church.  
It has been closed since the mid-1960's

It's looking a bit spooky these days.

For a couple of months my camera had a gray spot on the lens.  I thought that maybe I wore it out by taking so many pictures.  Eventually, though, the spot  disappeared on its own.  I just didn't want you to think that the spot was a cloud, UFO or a ghost!  

Here are some links to get you going on your research about the Warm Springs area, if you are interested:

What a gorgeous old buildings! Do you know if the one with a steeple was a church? Or a school? Amazing to see against that landscape too.

Those were fabulous photos. Thanks.

It does look a bit spooky, but all the more interesting as a result. Great photos!

Your photos are amazing. They look almost like 3 dimensional. I think the spot on the photos must have been a fingerprint or dirt on your lens....Christine

Way cool, and yeah, a little spooky. But spooky is good! And the Punchbowl photos are gorgeous, too. I've always thought you a grand photographer, but you seem to be getting even better!

Wow I love the picture of the old church. Wouldn't it be great to go inside and explore?

Thanks, Nicole!

Hi Aysia ... I don't know if I would want to go inside that one or not. It does look scary to me. I'm afraid that something would come back out with me! :>)
