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!

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.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I love it up around Crater Lake! One of my favorite spots in Oregon!

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.

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.
