Perched

I took this one at Davis Lake, Oregon.  Central Oregon is a fantastic place.  There’s an endless variety of places/things to shoot.  Not long after this shot was taken a bald eagle flew over head, landed, and started fishing.  I wasn’t quick enough to get a great shot.  Sometimes it’s better to live in theContinue reading “Perched”

Bridge 99

Bridge 99, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There’s no better place to camp. I know that feeling in me is spurred on by all the great memories I have of the place, but seriously… gorgeous river, fantastic trees, the smell of the air is breathtaking, and the beauty unparalleled. Ah, it will be good to goContinue reading “Bridge 99”

Water

Water, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The Metolius is gorgeous as a river. Springs up, literally, out of a hillside, and grows ever larger as it moves along being fed by other smaller rivers, creeks, etc. It is clear, clean, and beautiful.

Pups

Pups, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The pups love camping. Weston is on his lead here, but he got to be off of it. They both did. They were worn out by the time we got home. Two hikes in one day just about did the little souls in. They made it though, and actually wantedContinue reading “Pups”

The Four of Us

The Four of Us, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Here we all are. Sandy, Vicki, Karen (via the glasses), and me. You can’t see us very well really, but you can. Sandy would be the one hamming it up. You can barely make us all out, except Karen of course, who’s glasses and head came outContinue reading “The Four of Us”

Potato Oven

Potato Oven, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Mostly we ate at Vicki and Sandy’s cabin. Sort of cheesy as camping goes, but easy. One night, however, we decided we needed to cook at our campsite. The menu… baked potatoes, in the fire, steak cooked on the fire, and corn on the cob, also cooked on theContinue reading “Potato Oven”

Getting a Drink

Getting a Drink, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We went into Sisters one day for a couple of hours while we were over camping. It was a bit warm. Weston, who never drinks out of “other” bowls, drank. It was a first. This particular shot was taken outside a great gallery in Sisters. We love thisContinue reading “Getting a Drink”

Ponderosa

Ponderosa, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. It’s amazing in the Camp Sherman area of the Metolius. I love it there. My family went there nearly every year for awhile when I was young. I learned to fly fish on this river and loved every moment we spent there. Being there as an adult brings back allContinue reading “Ponderosa”

Riverside Site

Riverside Site, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I’ve been remiss. No blogging out of me for quite some time. I could go on and on with excuses, but I won’t. I will just dive right back in and do a monster blog summing up the last couple of weeks in our lives. We went camping atContinue reading “Riverside Site”

Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. So the amazing thing was Karen, I, and the dogs went for a little walk along the creek, walked around a bend, and there, in the middle of a marshy area was this bald eagle. Really amazing. I can’t do it justice, still cursing under my breath that IContinue reading “Bald Eagle”

Golf

  Golf, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. The conference I just attended started last Sunday out on the golf course. There’s an annual golf tournament connected with this conference. Our team always comes in last, though we have a great time, until this year. We actually came in second to last with a score of 3Continue reading “Golf”

Karen and Kevin

Kevin and Karen, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. Later on Saturday Karen and Kevin took the kayak back down the river to the lake to explore and paddle around a bit. I think Kev liked it.
