Some of the larger masonry and rock buildings that once lined main street have collapsed with only the front wall remaining in some cases. But several little wooden stores and shops still remain. The general store is open and cooking up some cheeseburgers for those who do visit.
We set up in various places around the little town. The weather couldn't have been more beautiful and by early afternoon, it was actually beginning to get warm, and shade was welcome. I painted these two small buildings along Main Street. The bright light changed as the morning went on and the shadows and dappled light from the trees created some challenges as they moved constantly. But hey, the cheeseburger and the beer made it all worthwhile!
