Life in Northern Minnesota

Today I spent some time exploring my aunt & uncle's property where I'm staying for a few days. My uncle used to run a lumber mill and used a bunch of equipment on his property over 20 years ago to build their log home. And it's still there along with a bunch of other junk that has accumulated over the years. I enjoy photographing old stuff just for the fun of it so I felt like I hit the jackpot today!

To start with, here's the beautiful log home he built:


And the driveway looking out toward the highway:


This is a tractor that my uncle claims is rare. I'll have to take his word for it.




The caterpillar's treads:


And a bunch of other rusty stuff that is foreign to me but was fun to shoot:







And old army truck cab that my uncle bought for parts:







After all that trekking through the brush, I attracted a community of wood ticks--7 is the total count that was extracted from my person. Fun stuff! Thus is life in Northern Minnesota :).

We used to have a Cat factory at the bottom of our field, now its Komatsu diggers. Just finished doing a company launch to several thousand people over a week period, Pyro ...lights and loads of video, and one week to install.
Cool
