Old School House

One of our traditional root fields sits just beyond Wilbur, Washington, near an old abandoned school house. The kids dug roots for a while and quickly decided to hike across the field to get a closer look at the school. I followed a while later and took some intriguing photographs, like looking through a window to the past. It seemed strangely fitting to dig roots in the shadow of an old school; in our way the roots are the teachers, and the wide-open field is our school.

Whitney and I saw a great horned owl in the school, but unfortunately, we didn't get a good picture. I could feel someone watching me, and when I looked up, I saw the owl gazing impassively from her nest in the tower.

Unfortunately, the floor was really weak. I'm afraid they would have fallen through.
