We were out this way in 2010. Pictures of that ride are HERE.

These images were made with my Nikon D810 camera and my
Zeiss Planar T* 50mm F/1.4 ZF.2 manual focus Lens.

It wasn't too toasty today but no complaints. We don't get many
sunny, dry, half way warm days in early February so off we went to
take some photos.

Birkenfeld is an unincorporated community in Columbia County, Oregon,
United States, in the Nehalem Valley on Oregon Route 202 between Jewell
and Mist.

German immigrant Anton Birkenfeld settled in the Nehalem Valley in 1886
and founded Birkenfeld in about 1910. Birkenfeld's post office was founded
in 1916, bringing much-needed mail service on a more local basis. As of
2010, the Birkenfeld post office has been closed permanently. Although
mail can still be addressed directly to the defunct post office, the
community has a Clatskanie ZIP code, 97016 and all mail directed toward
Birkenfeld is automatically redirected there.

As of the 1990s the community had a store, a café, a tavern, a garage, and
a church.

I talked to a local today who lives in a home about 1,000 yards from the
Birkenfeld Store. He said he is not considered a Birkenfeld resident
because he lives "so far" from town.....
