Some photos

Here are some miscellaneous photos I've taken in my travels:

A section of highway 22 in Oregon leading west out of Sweet Home.

This is the schoolhouse in Las Palomas, New Mexico, a ghost town. My mother went to school in this building, which has adobe walls nearly two feet thick. Notice the cross in the foreground. There's a cemetery there, and the kids used to play in it during recess. The schoolhouse is on a bluff overlooking the Rio Grande river.

These are the sarsen stones that circle the hamlet of Avebury, England. There is a huge berm outside the stones, and you can see it as the horizon. The stones form a circle one mile in circumference.
