Found this locomotive near my house....within 10 miles surprisingly .....Woodburn Oregon .........don't know if anyone has ever seen a cell tower shaped like a tree. They blend in pretty well.....if it's too hard to find how's a covered bridge sound....

Dang it, you guys beat me! I took a ride this morning down to the Snoqualmie Falls area where they have some old trains nearby, and I also came across a couple stop sign RR xings which I wasn't expecting to find. I'll be on the lookout for tree shaped cell towers and covered bridge sounds! :lol:

Well that has made everything splendidly clear. I know what a bell tower is, here is the view of my parish church taken from my front door. I doubt though this is what you mean.

Pretty amazing places that we as people get used to being surrounded by and not seeing said places as what they really are. Man made or natural ...... amazingly stunningly beautiful.......that said here's a cell tower tree... they like to have them blend in to the trees sort of in Oregon where they can...

Rockdog:
Good job done, and very fast though, your pictures are great; I love those old steamers.

Stew:
Sorry about this, but even you've found the trains and RR crossing (I love them too) it doesn't count this time :lol: :lol:
Congratulation to both of you.

What really marvells me is the fact that they had imagined those machines, didn't have nothing to copy from. :o

Industry has perfected the internal combustion motor, but the action is the same as it was over a hundred years ago.

Keep your good work and ride safely.

Ah, cell as in mobile phone. Now it makes sense. There is nothing like that in the UK, not that I have seen, what a good idea. Though mobile phones did give disused factory chimneys a new lease of life.

The closest I could get is across the street, anywhere on the other side of the intersection and I'd either be blocking traffic or up on the sidewalk. This is the covered bridge before going into Arlington High School just off Hwy 9.




For the next challenge: a picture of your Goldwing next to a sign that is either "Next Services" or "Next Rest Area", 50 miles or greater will count. Like the examples below. For you guys not in the US, whatever your equivalent road signs would be. Let the games begin :D

I got kinda lucky with that covered bridge being in the area :) With my new job my weekends are now Thu-Fri for the next couple weeks and then Wed-Thu for the next few months after that. Kinda nice if I'm riding somewhere like my ride out to Winthrop posted in the 'Trip Info, Reports & Gatherings' section because traffic is light, but since most people have Sat-Sun off it will make it harder to connect up with non-retired riders.

A ‘next services’ or ‘next rest area’ sign like in the example a couple of posts up :)
