Rajneesh in Oregon

In the late 70s the red-clad followers of Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh purchased a ranch in central Oregon. Within a few years they'd developed the ranch to the point where they could hold religious festivals attended by as many as 55,000 of the faithful from around the world. It became a big news story and I made trips from Portland to the ranch, named Rajneeshpuram. For a lover of Kodachrome 25 film, it was a great story. The combination of the desert light and the multihued clothes "the color of the rising sun" made for good photos. Here's a few.
