Maryhill, Washington

Maryhill is an interesting place. On the Columbia river where highway 97 crosses. There is a great museum documenting the region’s past. A replica stonehenge was built after world war one to honor the deceased from the area.  And, the vista of the river and small town are awesome. The population of the town is listed as 98… just right for that out of the city feeling.

It’s always a great experience to photograph other people’s artworks. Tom and Shauna Saffle have this retreat in the eastern cascades (known as the “Ranchette”) which they have modified into a time capsule of 1950 or 60ish dioramas. Each room has the flavor of days past. Additionally, Tom had me photograph his welded steel sculptures posted around the property. The Elk and Deer trophies are for sale. Tom calls them “torchadermy” (taxidermy with a welder).

They are compelling.
