Trip home with new trailer

Picture taken on Highway 97 in the high Desert near Shaniko Oregon. The old grain silo is made out of nothing but wood. I was lucky enough to watch one being dismantled about 50 miles down the road. The walls were at least two feet thick where they were working, about half way up. The lumber was stacked in different piles according to size, most looked like 2x8's. They were removing thousands of feet of wood that looked brand new, only the outside was weathered. There is a Diesel Truck with a tanker trailer parked on the left side of silo, shows how big it really is.
