Drive By Shooting

By
Real Estate Agent with Vernonia Realty 700512026

Drive by shooting….got your attention, didn’t I?  Well, this one didn’t hurt anybody, but it sure made MY day!

 

This is a small collection of what I get to see on my drive from Fishhawk Lake in the big city of Birkenfeld Oregon (ha!) to the bigger city of Vernonia Oregon where my real estate office is located.

 Sweet Home on Hwy 202 Mist Oregon

 

 

Mist is located 8 miles from my home on Fishhawk Lake. This was one of my first "shootings".

 

Right after this home is where Highway 47 goes through Mist and heads into Clatskanie, Oregon.

 

Tiny Barn on Highway 47

 

I’ve always thought this little guy looked kinda lonely.

 

 

I have friends here and always beep when I drive by.

Noake's Farm 

 

 

I’ve driven by this place many times in the last eight years and finally stopped to take a few shots—without bullets, of course.Peterson House Built in 1888

 

 

 

Along the road is this sign:The Country Museum Peterson House


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m sure there is much to learn about this lovely roadside attraction….for another time. (I’ll have to research it). I never see anyone here, and today was no exception.

Here's an old log that looks like it was wrangled up and fought hard before it gave up....Giant Tree Peterson House Country Museum

 

 

 

I found so many treasures…this was behind a fence in the barn.

There were so many things to “shoot”, but I didn’t want to get caught, so had to keep moving!

 

 

I did find this piece of art in the mundane: Equipment Art

 

 

 

 

 

Last shooting before heading into Vernonia, where I do real estate at Vernonia Realty.

Michael, thank you for noticing the enormity of that log--MASSIVE. Wasn't sure if the picture (I was shooting very quickly as it was raining) would do it justice.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful pics. What type of camera are you using? I do the same thing and people really seem to enjoy when I share.
