The bridge leading a Washington State Wildlfe Area. My husband like to hike this to watch the Mountain Sheep and other wildlife.

The  bridge leading to The Nature Conservancy Thousands Springs Preserve. It is the outlet to the Snake River Aquifer. We were host for a couple of years. It is now an Idaho State Park.

The entrance to Mexico from Aladognes, USA in the 1990’s

A gate? It definitely don’t look like one. It is the entrance to St. Luke’s Boise. You can leave an individual here and drive through this gate to the parking area. Let see what else I can find.

Not a man-made one but it is the entrance to the Whole In Wall, California. It is now a state or USA Park.

How about the entrance showing the Gatehouse at Manzinta Interment Camp, California, USA

A gate to control water in an irrigation system. Cottonwood Creek,  Idaho My Mother posing by the gate. Picture was taken probably in the late 1920/30’s Hanford family archives.

As I was looking for gates I had in my photo library (Betty Louise Hanford Davenport) I found some gate that I want to share.

My Cousin Joan and myself posing on a gate when the family went to see our Uncle Deb who was working at Anderson Ranch Dam. 1943’s? It is pleasant to remember that time.

My half-sister’s home Portland, Oregon. Note the gate leading into backyard. The flowers in the forefront are some I shared with her from my plants. Taken in 1990’s.

    Great pictures on the gates theme. I particularly like the Thousand Springs Preserve picture. It looks like the gateway to a beautiful, secret place.

    • It is an island on the Snake River. It a jersey breeding farm. She sent cows all over the world. Each cow had own worker and it electricity in 1920. The falls are name after the owner Minnie Miller who sold to a judge living Salt Lake. He made some odd rulings. The island is name him
