I had been shooting in Utah for several days. I was in Blanding, my base for shooting Hovenweep, House on Fire, and Natural Bridge. The weather turned dreary and drizzly for my mid-trip flex day. There being absolutely nothing to do in Blanding, other than sleeping and eating (and the latter options were really limited), so I decided to take a day trip to Durango, Colorado.
Driving through the rolling farmland of eastern Utah and into western Colorado I went through Cahone, did a double-take, turned around, parked and shot.
I assume that this was someone’s failed dream, now available for just $55,000. It was tempting, but I pressed on.
