Sepia Saturday: Project Abandoned

 For Sepia Saturday this week, I’m featuring a photo from my Idaho archives.

In  July of 2013, I explored the woodlands at my husband’s ranch in McCall, Idaho. I went deeper into the woods than I’d gone before and found this wonderful remnant of someone’s handiwork, long abandoned. I found out later that my hubby’s three sons had made a few “forts” around the property, when they were younger. I’m guessing this one didn’t get very far before it was abandoned for a more exciting project.

Even though this isn’t completely sepia toned, I think it qualifies for Sepia Saturday. The like the hint of green accenting the sepia trees.

As always I welcome comments on this or any other part of my blog.


I urge you to visit Ruckus the Eskie to see other marvelous sepia images.  And feel free to join the hop!

    Ooo thanks for linking up to Sepia Saturday blog hop and sharing this fun photo of the abandoned project. Such a fun mystery find. I wonder if its the same fort that they were attempting to build! See you next Saturday. .if not sooner!

    I think I left some color in my sepia photo this week too. I like the little bits of green; it freshens up the photo. I feel like this could be anything if you use your imagination…an abandoned fort, a hitching post….even that meat hanging thingy Sand Spring talked about. Love it.

    Thank you Jessica. I fell in love with it the moment I saw it a year and a half ago. It’s been in my now husband’s family since the mid 1930’s.

    Thank you! Originally I wondered if it was a hitching post. It’s at the perfect height for it. But it was way too far into the woods.

    Beautiful photo, when I first looked at it and you said it was from Idaho it looked like a meat hanging pole. We would do something like that in Colorado when we hunted elk to hang our meat on so the animals left it alone.
