  • Sparks Lake Oregon

    Sparks Lake is near Mt. Bachelor and the South Sister (the mountain in the photograph) in central Oregon. Taken shortly after sunrise on a just above freezing, perfect morning.

  • The Painted Hills

    The Painted Hills, a unit of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument, get their name from the stratifications in the soil. The bands are from layers of silt, vegetative matter and more from the time this was an ancient river floodplain. The colored bands in the hills seem to change color with moisture levels and the angle of the sun overhead. The hills are located about an hour east of Prineville, near Mitchell, Oregon

  • Spinner Dolphins

    Mother and juvenile Hawaiian Spinner dolphins from the SW side of the island of Kauai.

  • Falcon

    A falcon, I believe a peregrine falcon, taken over Smith Rock State Park, just north of Redmond, Oregon.

  • Clearwater Falls

    This 30 foot cascade over moss covered rocks is at the end of an easy hike from Clearwater campground just off of Hwy-138 east of Roseburg, Oregon.

  • Lorikeet

    A lorikeet from the Oregon Zoo in Portland. One if the few animals all visitors are able to touch, handle and feed. VERY friendly.

  • McKenzie Pass

    The lava flow from Belknap crater forms a great foreground to the view of the North Sister and Middle Sister mountains (the South Sister is hidden behind the Middle Sister in this view). All three volcanoes are over 10,000 feet/3,000 meters in elevation.

  • Mushroom

    An unidentified mushroom near Santiam Pass in Oregon

  • Tarweed Fiddlenecks and Fringepods

    Two very cool sounding wildflowers taken in southern Washington, just north of the Columbia River in Horsethief Lake State Park. Tarweed Fiddlenecks are the yellow flowers and the Fringepods are the discs.

  • Whitehorse Falls

    Located at the Whitehorse Falls campground on Hwy-138 east of Roseburg, Oregon, you can see a view almost like this from the parking area. It may only be a 15 foot waterfall, but it is a gorgeous 15 feet...

  • Rainbow Eucalyptus

    Rainbow Eucalyptus bark from a tree on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai.

  • Gold Star

    Along the Mosier Tunnel trail just outside of Hood River, Oregon.

  • Oaks Toothwort

    Trailside near Bridal Veil Falls in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon.

  • Sunrise at Sparks Lake with South Sister and Broken Top

    Taken at sunrise on a cold clear morning at 34f/1c degree morning in August. I find it hard to believe that some people were still sleeping in their tents and not seeing this. A fantastic morning. The South Sister is a dormant volcano, while Broken Top is an extinct volcano. Behind me is Mt Bachelor, another dormant volcano.

  • Blades of Grass

    Simply drops of dew on blades of grass from my backyard.

  • Lower South Falls

    One of the jewels of Silver Falls State Park in Oregon, this 93 foot drop is well worth the hike.

  • Sparks Lake and the South Sister

    Sparks Lake is near Mt. Bachelor and the South Sister (the mountain in the photograph) in central Oregon. Taken shortly after sunrise on a just above freezing, perfect August morning.

  • Calypso Orchid

    One of many I have seen in the woods. This one was located in Silver Falls State Park, east of Salem, Oregon.

    Grass and other ground cover plants on the southern Oregon coast.

    One of a group of deer I spotted roadside, south of Sisters, Oregon, enroute to Three Creek Lake.

  • Anthony Lake

    Anthony Lake in eastern Oregon with (I think) Gunsite Mountain.

  • Bee on Thistle

    A quick pic of a bee on a thistle weed in one of our pastures.

  • Upper North Falls

    Typically a boring waterfall from the standard viewpoint, crossing the creek to this angle makes the 65 feet look so much better! You can find it in Silver Falls State Park in Oregon.

  • Lion

    This "concentrating" lion is at the West Coast Game Park Safari near Bandon, Oregon. It is walk though animal park where you can look at the animals, pet some, and feed some. No, you cannot feed the lions or tigers...

  • Bison

    A view over a herd of Bison to the valley below at the National Bison range north of Missoula, Montana.

  • Mt Hood from Trillium Lake

    Taken near the boat launch on Trillium Lake, this view of Mt. Hood is a classic.

    A very friendly prairie dog at the Devils Tower National Monument in Wyoming.

  • Dramatic Clouds

    Some clouds over the hills in eastern Oregon.

  • Anthony Lake

    Anthony Lake in eastern Oregon with (I think) Gunsite Mountain. The bridge is part of a trail system the circles the lake.

  • Sandstone Formations

    While I wish I could say that it is a city created by ancient peoples, it is simply sandstone near the ocean at Shore Acres State Park near Bandon, Oregon.

  • Toketee Falls

    Toketee Falls are located east of Roseburg, Oregon. The 120 foot plunge through a cut in the columnar basalt wall is one of my favorites.

  • Fishing Anyone?

    I like the loneliness of this abandoned fishing boat near Wasilla, Alaska.

  • Koi Pond

    While the koi in the pond were rather ugly, the flowers were quite photogenic... Taken at Peterson Rock Garden near Redmond, Oregon.

  • White Tiger

    This incredible white tiger is at the West Coast Game Park Safari, near Bandon, Oregon. It is walk though animal park where you can look at the animals, pet some, and feed some. No, you cannot feed the lions or tigers...

  • Trillium Lake Fisherman

    A man fishing from his one person pontoon boat on Trillium Lake near Mt. Hood in Oregon. Did you notice the kayaker on the right and the couple in the canoe on the left?
