Enchanted Forest, Oregon U.S.A.

This is slightly embarrassing to admit, but one of my guilty pleasures is watching the very dorky Travel Channel show, Ghost Adventures with a nice, cold, locally brewed IPA in my hand on a Saturday Night.

Last summer one of their locations was Enchanted Forest, a weird little roadside attraction about an hour south of where I live. My husband and I decided to pay a visit to this haunted place the next day. Of course I brought my pinhole camera!

I’d driven by this place a dozen times and wondered what it was. I’m so glad we decided to check it out. It’s perfect for photography and lots of fun, even if you don’t have kids with you.

Enchanted Forest is the project of a man by the name of Roger Toffte. There are storybook, “European Village,” and, “Western Town” themed areas that you can visit. There is also a play every three hours, acted by local high school students, and when we were there, there was band in the “pub” singing Irish folk music. There were even kids in the audience that came out and danced!

It was great fun and totally worth the drive down here, and I’m planning on going again next summer.

All of these photos were taken with a Terrapin Ace, 3D printed by Todd Schlemmer, and the film used was Kodak Ektar 100.
