    Eastern Oregon

    I'm on vacation at Sun River Oregon. You should visit this part of the country some time!

    Took the kids to see Crater Lake. Still snow covered!




    Some waterfall, I thought it looked cool



    Lots of Mountains around here!



    I went on a bike ride up towards Mt. Bachelor yesterday. Beautiful scenery and the motorists were very polite. I must admit though that I suck at climbing!

    I thought that first picture was computer-generated! Beautiful!

    Yes, beautiful isn't it? I have a property there, someday I hope to build on it. By the way us "Orygownians" consider the area to be "central Oregon" Eastern Oregon would be further east out in the sagebrush country. Hope you enjoy your visit.

    I love it up around Crater Lake! One of my favorite spots in Oregon!
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I myself prefer Steens Mountain or the Wallowas. Too many trees in the Cascades for me.

    Your right! And I used to live in Baker as a kid. I guess I was thinking anything East of the Cascades is eastern Oregon.

    Let me know if you'll be in Eugene-Springfield, we can ride or have coffee.
    Those voices in your head aren't real, but they have some great ideas

    Us former residents of Baker never refer to the town as Baker City.

    I've taken pictures of Crater Lake before. Its VERY hard to capture the blueness of the water near Wizard Island on film, and you did a great job.
