Lester WA (part I)

Lester is a ghost town near Stampede Pass in King Co., Wa. This old railroad town was abandoned in 1984 and is now part of the Tacoma Watershed. The whole area is gated off and one has to hike in along a dirt road to reach the town. In our case, Tony (housemate) and I drove over miles of jeep trails to reach the gate. Good way to spend the 4th of July :)

This is the first of 2 parts and shows the buildings that are still standing. Part 2 will be up in a day or 2.

Kayaking the Ship Graveyard

Let me pre-face by saying that this is something completely different than my usual post.

Last weekend I kayaked out to a ship graveyard with a couple of my friends. I have had this waterproof sport camera for over a year, and had yet to use it. The kayak trip sounded like the perfect chance to see what it could do, so I purchased a mount for the kayak, and a head mount so somebody could wear it while we were exploring the old ships. What I ended up with is a 20ish minute behind-the-scenes style video shot primarily from the point-of-view of one of my friends. It's a fun little film, though a far cry from the cinematic videos Christina and I usually put out (that's why it's unlisted on our YouTube channel). Hopefully some of you find it enjoyable.

Eventually the material we captured that day will be made into a proper entry for our website AntiquityEchoes, and subsequently shared here as a proper post. In the meantime, I guess you can consider this a preview of sorts...
