Sandy Creek covered bridge in Remote

Sandy Creek covered bridge in Remote

Covered bridges were developed to protect valuable structural timbers from the decay they would suffer if exposed to the weather. They were common in pioneer days everywhere in North America with enough timber, but are now mostly historic relics. However they continued to be built in Oregon well into the 20th century (this one in 1921) and many still carry traffic on lightly used country roads.

The Remote Store

Remote, Oregon, was truly remote when it was founded in 1887, right in the middle of the heavily forested Coast Ranges. When the Coos Bay to Roseburg Highway was completed it became a little less isolated. The busy highway has recently been re-aligned to bypass the tiny town and the old general store/gas station/post office has closed down. Other towns in Oregon with interesting names - Drain, Boring, Nimrod, and Wankers Corner
