Peter Iredale Wreck

In the northwestern part of Oregon, lies the Fort Stevens State Park.  It has a military heritage and historical past.  But between the old abandoned bunkers and many walking trails lie this relic of time, the Peter Iredale.  It’s the rusted out remnants of a 1909 cargo ship wrecked on shore leaving it’s hull as a treasured gift of the past.

For me it’s a photographic destination.  While our country is full of National Parks and State Parks with landscape attractions like waterfalls, mountains and peaks the likes of El Capitan (Yosemite), there are few historic ‘castaways’.

This is a treasure of history meets landscape, literally and a photographically interesting subject.
