Waiting for the Fall by WayneBenedet Waiting for the Fall by WayneBenedet
This house was totally hidden from view, but the orientation of the trees suggested that a house should be there, so I made a side trip. I had to drive across a field and then walk into the site. And there she was, just like the landscape predicted.

Iwonder of what tales the house would tell if it could talk.

How did you find this house? Internet aerial views or some old maps?

my comments explain how I found it.

I was driving by, the orientation of the trees suggested that a house would be there, so I investigated.

great find. So you too look at a clump or a row of trees and "go some thing should be there" drives my wife nuts as I randomly point these feature out as we drive by. The only things is around here 90% of the time you can tell there is nothing left or when I have gone to see if there is anything, there is nothing save for an odd brick or some sort of debris to tell you a structure was there. It's a shame as these places are our heritage.

Trees were planted out here around houses to give shelter from the wind. After a while of looking, a pattern emerges. When the leaves are off the trees, you can often see a structure from a half mile or more away. (In summer that is not possible of course). You can't tell what it is or its condition, but you can tell there is something there. Often I make note of placed in winter and then go back in summer. But sometimes, like for this house, I was traveling to put up a show so I was about 3 hours out. In cases like this, I usually just take what I can get at the time. Going back is not always practical because of distance and commitments. Though I have thought of towing a trailer into an area and staying for a week or so. Maybe this summer????
