2014 Herbert E. Lindberg

As we drove out of town to return home from our January 25 visit I noticed some interesting buildings that tempted me to stay longer, but the sun was setting and I didn't want to drive back up the winding Washington Road and on to Nevada City in the dark. So the next time we thought about taking a drive I suggested re-visiting Washington -- it's a pleasant drive and we'd had some rain which would give us a chance to see the South Yuba River at Washington with some water in it. Today is that day.

Building next door to the Washington Hotel toward the bridge over the South Yuba River.

... and next door to that was this collection of stuff and a truck under repair.
This continues the description of Washington as a "rustic" town.

Almost directly across the street the home owner has this classic old truck in his front yard.


A closer view of the truck, and the home address.  That's some weird looking engine.

A couple homes back toward the hotel on the truck side is this accumulation of artifacts.


Zoom in to check out things on and near the porch.  Note the clever use of an old mop on the woman manikin.
Much of what I saw up close makes me believe Washington's culture is dominated by young and middle-age men.


I'm now back across the street in the entrance room of the hotel restaurant.
The left side of the room is a wall of windows which give a clear view of the novelty shop next door.

 
 

I walked through the hotel restaurant and out the back to get a view of the river now that it had rained.
The river was wide and smooth-flowing directly in back of the hotel but there were now swift-moving rapids upstream.

 
 

You can see the rapids in this zoomed view.


The bridge, path and wall beneath the deck on this visit were now bright enough to show colors.


 

The inviting path, the building next door, and "stuff" hanging from the hotel's rock wall.

Another zoomed view of the river, this from the back right corner of the upper deck.
