Lloyd Grimes, Cat Operator
Neahkahnie Mountain, Oregon coast

1974 portrait captured in the midst of an authentic treasure hunt, high on the slopes of Neahkahnie Mountain overlooking the hamlet of Manzanita on the North Oregon Coast. The quest was to find the gold supposedly left by Spaniards 300 years ago (according to the legend) in the area where we had gathered. The dig site included an assortment of characters all of whom could scarcely trust each other... including an ex-felon just released from prison (as the story was told) with everyone toting guns and exhibiting a bravado that could only be matched by Lee Marvin in an adventure movie. Pictured is Lloyd Grimes one of the main protagonists, a Cat Operator, who told me on the eve of the dig that if I dared to divulge the whereabouts of the treasure site, that I'd be "sucking soup through a straw for six weeks." Needless to say... the famous Treasure of Manzanita has yet to be found. Photographed on the opening day of the treasure hunt when tensions rose to the boiling point. It was obvious by their behavior... no one was to be trusted! The look on Grimes face says it all... one of our favorite photojournalist portraits from the past.
