Desert Brush

As often as I've seen it there is stills something magical about brush in the desert. The smell of it in particular always gets to me.

Closer to Beulah Reservoir

Here is a closer look at Beulah Reservoir. This was a windy day so not much was moving out there.

View From Crowley Road

Here is a view from Crowley Road. Antelope hunters pay attention. You'll find a big buck in this area.

Beulah reservoir

A windy, cloudy day near Beulah reservoir north of Juntura, Oregon. What a great place to take the family fishing and camping.

High Up South of Squaw Creek

This is a pretty remote area to get to and not very much traveled. If it looks like you are standing pretty high up that is because I was at the time. There was still snow on the ground in May here.

Beautiful Sky

Don't get me wrong, I love western Oregon a lot. I lived on the other side of the state for years, but you just won't find a beautiful clear sky like this over there, at least not very often. Looking at that big sky over the desert makes a person realize just how small humans are in the grand scheme of things.

Trees Off of Highway 20

These twisted shapes really caught my eye as I was driving by. I couldn't pass them up and just had to share them with you. I thought the shadows from the clouds made for a pretty dramatic shot.

Barren Desert

Believe it or not finding patches of desert as barren as this is a real challenge. You can find this spot of forsaken waste off of Twin Springs road which is north and west of Owyhee reservoir.
