Late Autumn Central Oregon Landscape

Taken a few weeks ago on our trip to Central Oregon, the ground is frozen solid in this photo. Everything is very still. There is a very light dusting of dry, flaky snow on the ground. Mt Hood can barely be seen in the distance, peeking out from under the dark, thick cloud covered sky.

My Dads Old Tractor

Digging way back in the archives for todays photo. My Dad built the house that my family grew up on. This tractor was a major part of the work he did. Back in April of 2004, my Dad sold the house. I took this photo on the last day I set foot on the property. A fitting photo for Sepia Scenes (which I have never participated in until today) and Photo Thursday (theme today is construction).

I wish I could go back and take the photos I took back that day again now. But some things are better left to memory.

A bit of rain

Believe it or not, it was actually dry for a few days ;) But yesterday it rained a bit. With the rain came a bit warmer temperatures (in the 40's instead of the 30's we've been experiencing). I don't mind the rain at all. Well, for now. Ask me again in April or May HAHA!

Under and Up

It is the end of mushroom season. It is getting way too cold for them to survive, and it actually has been quite dry for about a week now. But this picture is one of my favorites, and went well with ABC Wednesdays "U" theme today. I had never seen a mushroom like this one, and have not since.

Back on the road

What a weekend!!! On Friday, my car had some troubles. Nothing makes me panic more than car problems. I'm not car savvy, and the potential for real problems and the costs that come with them is overwhelming. Luckily, my brother is VERY car savvy and came over to take a look. A small problem, very easy fix, and my car was back on the road. WHEW!

Photo taken two weeks ago on our way to central Oregon. The sky was really odd - very dark in some places, but a few bright spots of blue. And it was COLD!
