welcome home {words by John Muir}



Photograph: Wonder Lane in Wornder, Oregon, located in far southern Josephine County.  Down this dirt road and left turn up another is where my sister and I moved with our parents from Seattle, Washington in 1984.  We camped for the summer in two tents and a Volkswagen van while our father built a modest frame house with the help of a local contractor.  Wonder was founded in 1902 and consists merely of a number of houses and a small general store.  It is located along the famed Redwood Highway, US HWY 199, which connects the communities of southern Oregon with the Pacific coastline; and lies with in the Siskiyou National Forest.
