Bottle Tree Forest, CA – ’11

turns out we should probably collect old men who collect…we went up to visit the house where jared lived for a couple years as a kid up in the high desert. along the way we discovered this gem. elmer long has been doing this for over 20 years. like leonard at salvation mountain, word got out and people started sending him their bottles. he also collects other antiques and found items to crown his trees.

here’s the architect…

elmer gave us a tour and told us some stories behind the treasures

elmer calls this the $60,000 sax. it was his son’s for music school…

apparently there used to be a bagdad, ca..but no longer

here’s jared’s old house
