This is the lumber mill at Troy Idaho, located about 12 miles or so to the East of Moscow Idaho.
To me these pictures capture the colors, the texture and because they are taken on Holiday (Memorial Day) the workers are gone and so it has this ery deserted feel to it and that reminded me very much of the old David Lynch Series "Twin Peaks".
Doesn't this look like the set straight out of Twin Peaks?
...and of course the pile of sustainables. I had to get a shot of the lumber; this is what we make our houses out of!
Here's the yard:
If you come to Troy, there is a little cafe there, a gas station, a post office, and a few little shops and such along the one main road, but no stoplight.
If you keep going through town and on down the road a ways there is a pull off at a trail head on an old abandoned railroad line. It's a great place for jogging or a day hike. Otherwise you can turn right and continue on to Lewiston this way and see a whole other part of the Palouse. If you head on the road way to the left it takes you further out into the country until the road eventually stops at Elk.
