On a recent trip revisiting Steens Mountain, I thought back on what this place looked like decades before. When I got home, I browsed my photos and realized several pictures I took on this trip were taken in nearly the exact same spot.
Places seem to me to have some kind of memory, in that they activate memory in those who look at them.W. G. Sebald
Some places call you back to them. While revisiting Steens Mountain this summer, I realized it is one of those places for me.
Here are a few “then” and “now” pictures I took of the Steens.

Great shots, SB! I wonder if the paucity of snow in the second photo is a global warming thing?
Thanks! These photos were taken at different times of the year so there’s more snow in some of them. You can only drive to the 9,700 foot level in the summer, when there isn’t much snow.
That’s pretty amazing Siobhan – the repeat of the places you captured years later. Clearly the place is a draw to you. Thanks for sharing them – such beautiful country out there.
Thanks, Tina. Yes, certain places seem to pull you in. 🙂
Wow… breathtaking ! The last one is my favorite.
Thanks! Nice clouds for taking pictures that day.
