Mystery shack

August 16th, 2010


  1. Lily says:

    Gosh, that’s beautiful!!! Almost like the stone assembled itself there, just to hold the blue sky…

  2. Looks Greek to me! :-) We see lots of those kinds of houses here on Paros! Or maybe some Greek settlers came that way….way back when?

    I am sure it has stories to tell…..did you sit awhile and “listen”?

  3. Jeff says:

    How about a hilltop fortress to watch for those Native American Indians trying to protect thier land.

  4. Gigi says:

    Ruins! Did you climb the hill and look around? Must have been peaceful up there.

  5. Michael in Atlanta says:

    Nice. If you’ve read The Shack by Paul Young, you might see Papa standing right out front with flour on her apron.

  6. Admiral Ackbar says:

    Did you sleep there?

  7. MN Roxanne says:

    The shack looks interesting and if only rocks could talk! Those boulders near by it look looming like “watch out below!!”

  8. Doesn’t quite make my vision of a “shack”…you know, broken down small “wooden” building…weather-worn wood…a horse shoe above the door (hanging down…”luck pouring out”, hanging down)…but though it doesn’t fit my picture…it sure fits Matts’…and he is the top hobo here…I yield to the gentleman from, ahhhh…well, everywhere…

  9. Candice in Alabama says:

    I just can’t call that a shack – ruin – yes, but not a shack.

  10. John in MI says:

    I wonder if it was ever finished…I say that because it reminds of some projects around the house I’ve started, but never was quite able to complete.

  11. Glad yr walkin’ the Washington side of the river. The Oregon side is gorgeous and has Multanomah Falls but the WA side has more weirdness like the shack and the lil’ Stonehenge replica. Being in FL it’s been a treat to see your pics from my ol’ stomin’ grounds of WA state.

  12. Donna in MI says:

    HOW SAD!!….for us. SO HAPPY!!….for Hobo Matt. He spent last night in Lyle, WA. Google’s walkin’ mans route shows 167 miles to Rockaway Beach. If he keeps doing his 25 miles a day, it’s possible….make that probable he will be in Rockaway Beach on Sunday.

    • Party Pooper…(did I spell that right???)…

      • Donna in MI…you know that’s just a joke…we all feel about the same way as you…sad and happy…it will be a good time for Matt when it is over…

      • Donna in MI says:

        Jim in AR via MN,
        You betcha! I think many of us will be crying tears of happiness for Matt because he has has finally reached his destination after walking 3100+ miles, and tears of sadness because our Hobo Planet’s vicarious journey has come to an end.

        I’M not a “Party Pooper”! HOBO MATT IS THE “PARTY POOPER”!! Blame it on him! Party pooper….party pooper. He’s putting an end to our “Party” and our Hobo Nation/Planet. boo hoo boo….. boo hoo hoo….tissue please….make that a handful of tissues.
