new life
this majestic oak has given me and others refuge from summers heat, provide comfort whilst enjoying the panoramic view of the Columbia river (which is out of shot to the left), and now provides foreground to a nice shoot of the parades grounds of fort Vancouver.
a pine and a grove
this is the beginning of the walkway that takes one past the fort Vancouver replica, into an apple grove similar to one when the fort thrived and then over to the banks of the Columbia river. I have enjoyed late summer evening walks, early morning and rainy afternoon strolls, and even frigid winter day strolls along here to the river and into town
desert life
near Redmond, Oregon, along the crooked river, there is a rest area off of highway 97 that used as a rest back in the days when my retail merchandiser job took me to bend, Oregon. the stop is used regularly by motorists and truck drivers but it is never packed giving all users enough room to spread out. these trees are but one scenic of a park that the crooked river has cut a deep canyon into and off in the distance across the highway, along a mountain range is a massive rock balancing on a less massive base and is known as balancing rock. whether I needed a refreshment stop here or not I stopped to take in the beauty of this region in summer, fall, and winter.
