beautiful oregon

Taking the idea from Neesie, I picked some of my fave vacation pics and put them into little mosaics so it wouldn't take so long to look at the photos.  I grouped them kinda sorta by topic..... we spent a week in beautiful central Oregon, visiting Redmond, Bend, the Painted Hills, Smith Rock and more.  If you have the opportunity to visit, we'd strongly encourage it - the scenery is just stunning!

Painted Hills & Smith Rock area above and delightful rusty old stuff below (except the heron!)


Who doesn't love a decrepit old barn and picturesque hillsides?

Fun stuff below - dinner & drinks, art in the evening, feeding the mule deer an apple and sightseeing in Bend.

And here's some of the stunning scenery! Mt Hood, first hint of fall, the Crooked River and a sunset to die for (lots of wildfires putting smoke and haze in the air).
Thanks for letting me share Oregon with you......

  11. I have been to Oregon once. We had many days to visit and I saw so much, but even so, I missed a lot! Look at these fabulous pictures! I met a woman yesterday who was visiting from Oregon and we talked a lot about how fabulous it is!
