How about posting images of your neighborhood, home, animals, foods, etc. what ever pictures you would like to share.


I'll start by posting a picture of a local moose eating somebody's groceries outside the Safeway store.

The man went inside the doorway for a moment while waiting for a taxi. The moose boldly took advantage of the situation and started to eat the man's groceries. LOL.

Nothing he could do but wait for the moose to be done. Moose is bigger and they can kick straight forward, so you stay out of their way. LOL.

I hope you like this image and will post of your own here. :)

"Half House". This strange half house is in Alaska. Five "stories" high, and an unofficial land mark. LOL.
It's often used when giving directions. As in; "go three miles past the "half house" and turn to the driveway on right.... :)

Love the moose photo. I'm glad I won't have that problem!

Glad you love the image. :)

It's an interesting and unusual problem. I'm glad you and (me too) don't have that problem. :):)

I took this picture of an Alaskan Food Cache. A place to store your meats during the cold, freezing winters. They are built high enough to keep bears and predators from reaching the food. Not many of these in use anymore. Maybe some are still used way up north.

Who would use this? Trappers, hunters, woodsmen?

It looks like a great artist like Waldmüller painted it. :)

Maybe trappers up north. It would be someone who stays in one area for a while. Maybe someone who is off the grid. Doesn't have electricity or a generator so they don't have a freezer. These were more common in the 50s and 60s than they are now.

The one on the picture is a quaint "eye candy" by the mouth of someone's little dirt road.

There are still trappers that stay out all winter in the wilderness. They may have a cabin somewhere in the mountains and have a food caches there also.

Hunters just go out for the hunt. Then come back home. Moose opening is in the autumn.

Thank you much for your kind comment. I'll have to google Waldmüller. Don't know his works.

I did some photo editing on this picture and also brightened it up.

This lake shot was taken in the early autumn, after harvest time. You see the hay pole full of hay. In the olden times, the farmers put their hay up on hay-poles to dry. The hay was put up loosely so the air could circulate through it and dry it.

Once dry, the farmers piled the hay onto a horse drawn hay wagon that had high sides. . After that the hay was pitched (with pitch forks) into the barn. As kids, it was great fun to climb to the hayloft and jump down on the huge, tall piles of hay. :)
