A Nicer Part of Hell by Corvidae65 A Nicer Part of Hell by Corvidae65

Best in Full View for detail

One more panorama of my not-so-secret, secret location.  This is the last one for now.  I promise.  I love this place and I'd like to help both preserve it and open parts of it to the public so it can be appreciated.  I hope to be able to spend some time there this spring when I have time off and can get the three day permit required for access.  I am praying for good weather and ultra cool clouds then :nod:

I think this was 7 horizontal shots stacked vertically but I don't remember exactly.

:aww: :meditation: I have such fond memories of this place... visited in 1962, on the way to the Seattle World's Fair... squashed between my older sister, and brother, in the backseat of a brand new 1962 wide tracking Pontiac... driving on Portland Cement... on portions of the under-construction Interstate Highway system :wow:  Right after we departed this location, we saw a small :icontornadoplz: out in the middle of freaking nowhere... thanks for the memories John! :iconjoyloveplz:

Thank you! :heart:


You are right, Linley--this place lacks depth even when seeing it in person.  It's a little disorienting because your eyes WANT to see depth, dimension and contrast but your mind can't detect it in the scene.  From where I took the panorama to the far edge of the scene is probably a quarter mile but it looks flat and 2-dimensional.  I really look forward to being able to get onto the floor and see it from there.

:no:  You don't want cold like we just had.  I got out of the truck one day and forgot to put on my gloves before exiting the cab and my right hand flash froze to the metal grab handle!  It was -25F that day with -55 wind chill.  My hand still hurts! :doh:
