Winthrop, Washington

So, I’m sort of digging into my photo backlog here. I took these back in July and never got around to posting them, though I did post pictures from on the way driving up. Just looking back through older photos and thought “Heeey… I never did post these…”

Anyway. Better late than never, right?

Winthrop is a little, western-themed town in the Methow Valley. They’ve even preserved some of the original buildings from the pioneers and refurnished them into a museum. 🙂 It’s a pretty cool place.

Enjoy the pictures!

All those things are some of the old machines that they put back together. Steampunk-ish, isn’t it?

Higher up in the hills. And more fun with the miniature effect. 😛

  1. Wow these remind me of an old gold rush ghost town I used to go to with my family and Grandparents when they visited us. (at the time we lived in separate states) I think it was Dogwood or something like that.

Any thoughts?
