While we were camping at the ranch out of Heppner, my sister, Stacie and her son, Jacob, and Hailey and I, had a chance explore of one of the old buildings still left standing on the ranch. We visited an old cookhouse built for the loggers when they were logging the area probably nearly a 100 years ago. I have a thing for looking at old buildings and wondering what those old walls would say if they could talk.
I kept thinking of the movie, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Did any of the cooks who worked here marry their customers? Yep, I'm a hopeless romantic!
I don't know what these metal signs were used for. They were sticking out of the fireplace chimney. They must have acted as some sort of a barrier, but I'm not sure how or why. Anybody know?
