Wayward Tourist

We got lost in Oregon trying to find Silver Falls State Park. When we pulled into Silverton realizing our error, we noticed a quaint, colorful little town with several murals on the downtown buildings. It was time to get out and stretch our legs.

Turns out one of the murals was a story about Bob the Dog, who like us, was once lost. Back in the 1920's he was on a trip from Silverton, Oregon to Northern Indiana. While in Indiana he got separated from his family.

Several months, and 2,500 miles later he showed up back in Silverton.

It's funny that by chance, we learned of Bob's story and got to see this and other fantastic murals in Silverton. There's even one of the space shuttle and the world's largest camera. Now that's something this photographer from Indiana finds worthy of a snapshot.
