The adobe walls of the long abandoned Dorgan house crumble around its stately centerpiece,  a chimney made from petrified wood found in the area.  The extinct volcano,  Cerro Castellan, sentinelling in the distance. By locke.pics

I love the composition: three levels of permanence. Ephemeral adobe in the foreground, virtually indestructible chimney built of petrified stone in the middle ground, and Cerro Castellan in the distance. They'll all disappear into the ground eventually: the first in a lifetime, the second in a century or two, and the last in geologic time.
