Is this photo cool? Somebody tell me if it is. It turned out this way because there wasn't enough light getting through the trees, and the shutter stayed open too long. But I kinda like it. Does anyone else??
And I took this shot of the same mountains from Pilot Butte State Park in Bend, OR. The park is at the top of a large cinder cone, or extinct volcano. It affords quite the view, does it not?
Yeah, this part of Route 20 went straight forEVER. I could have set the cruise control, put The Club on the steering wheel, and taken a 30 minute nap!
While western Oregon is covered with evergreens, eastern Oregon is just desolate. Very Wyoming-like. There are still a few trees thrown in for good measure.
