Have you ever visited the Timberline Lodge? It's a historic building created by artists and apprentices during 1936-1937 as a part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's WPA efforts. The lodge is at the base of Mt. Hood, Oregon, and was made from local stone, Fir and iron scraps leftover from the railways being built near by. There are no perfect right angles in this beautiful building because the entire thing was built by hand. It's a magnificent place with a real human touch. Best of all, things at Timberline have remained very much the same since the hotel first opened about 75 years ago.
