Abandoned Airstream #1

While out hiking in the hills above North Bend, WA last Saturday, we came across this abandoned Airstream Safari. I wish I knew the year of it, but I don’t. I’m thinking it’s from the eighties or early nineties. It’s in an incredible spot: flat, trees, big open plot of land with an incredible view of the valley and Mt. Si.

I wish I could find the owner of it and ask: What’s up? How can you abandon a beauty like her in a spot like this. Sad to think the trailer isn’t being enjoyed! But it did raise a lot of sinister questions between us in sort of a Twin Peaksish sort of way.

The Airstream has blackberry bushes growing all around it, and in a few years, will be covered with them. The area is being developed rapidly, however, so I think that someday soon it will be taken away.
