I made this picture earlier today up at Cloud Cap Inn. (Yes, loaded film holders, drove two hours, used a large format camera, drove home, developed, and scanned in one day.) Built in 1889, it is fifty years older than Timberline Lodge, and sits at 6000 ft elevation on the northeast side of Mt. Hood, Oregon. An Endangered Place, it has survived extremes of weather for 127 years and narrowly escaped the Gnarl Ridge Burn of 2008, when flames came within a few feet of the building (you can see burned trees), and the Dollar Lake Burn of 2011. It is the 2nd oldest building of its type in the United States, oldest west of the Mississippi. The interior walls have guest signatures dating from the late 1800s. It has no representation in the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) in the Library of Congress, while its neighbor, Timberline Lodge, has over 150 large format photos in the archives. This Ilford Delta 100 4x5 negative was shot with a Sinar F2 view camera and developed in Kodak HC-110. #cloudcapinn #cloudcap #mthood #blackandwhitephotography #4x5 #filmisalive #filmisnotdead #sinar #filmphotography #blackandwhite #ilford #delta100 #hc110 #largeformat #historicphoto #historic #usforestservice #forestservice #oregon #oregonhistory #darkroom #srgresearch #P50Photo #cragrats
