Barn U.S. Route 395 Oregon
I found this on barn on U.S. Route 395 north of Burns, Oregon. U.S. Route 395 had very little traffic you would not see anyone for hours. The day before we drove and we were running on fumes we had not seen a gas station for quite a while. Then we saw gas stations with great prices we would pull in and the pumps were all locked up, we even saw a house that had a pump in the yard. It was about 7pm on Sunday and they had closed at 5pm then we came to Lakeveiw Oregon and saw another gas station that was locked up also. We saw a police officer talking with some locals and stopped to ask where a gas station was and there was a Chevron less than a 1/4 of a mile down the road. The funny thing about U.S. Route 395 was you would not see anyone for hours, stop your car and then people came out of the wood work wanting to know how your car was running (which was comforting because of the lack of cell service) and if you knew how to read the no trespassing signs. Then someone else would drive by and you had a funny feeling that they had just talked to the last person that drove by. Someone stopping was the news of the day. I do not trespass if there is a sign and most people relax when they see the camera I have even had people say I could go in if I did not disturb anything. That is what I am trying to do with the camera preserve the past and show people what is out there if you look around. The last thing I want to do is destroy it. Imagine if someone had destroyed this barn and its beauty.
