Temperature above 30 today!

The current temperature is 31. I dont know if it will get above freezing today, but if it does, it will be the first time in about a week! The unusually cold temperatures have frozen everything around. I thought this stump, with its rings accentuated with frost, was interesting.

Sherars Falls

I am not through posting pictures from my camping trip to Central Oregon two weeks ago ;) This one is of Sherars Falls on the Deschutes River. Sherar’s Falls is a traditional fishing site used by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs. Purchased by the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs in the 1970s, the falls and lands adjacent to them have been put into trust. Currently, the Bureau of Land Management maintains the lands for the Tribe, however, tribal members continue to build their scaffols and fish for salmon at the falls.

Frosty Weather

In the past week, the weather has gotten colder and colder every day. It is presently 11:45am, and only 27 degress F. The skies are totally clear, so there is no cloud layer to provide any warming blanket. Every morning, the dew freezes and leaves an icy layer of frost on everything it touches.
