Mud-spattered muscle truck in Sierras Saturday

My son Evan discovered what’s going to be the most unique tiny house in our book. Pentagonal in plan, immaculately built, unique in dozens of highly crafted features, this world-class snowboarder’s wilderness cabin is a stunner. I mean, Louis Frazier (Home Work) and Lloyd House (Builders of the Pacific Coast) will love this place. We went up to the Sierras to shoot photos and do an interview, and on the way back spotted this truck in Colfax, with these two young backroads spirits. Click on pic to get bigger size.

  1. I see rigs like that in my neck of the woods here in Oregon, and I also see the torn up rutted tracks they leave that bring further erosion that pours mud into our streams and rivers when it rains. All of that mud on that rig is a sure sign that they have been damaging the environment. Then one should think about what gas guzzlers those rigs are.
