Balancing Rocks of Oregon

 At one time this was just a local place.
Not to many people have been there. Now of course it has a sign and progress has moved in.
There are other spots that have these balancing rocks, some day I would like to hike to the spots we have found.
These remind me of a giant who came in and set up his house the way he wanted it.
I took these gosh, a year ago?

A Walk Around The Cascades

The Cascade Mountains are named because of the cascades within them.

It is a treat to get to see a cascade that is full of water. These small waterfalls can be very fun!!

Very slippery, so be careful while I show you around!!

Now it is rather easy to take many photographs, you can see why cant you?

Oh, you might want to keep a eye on your dog too, dogs do get hurt on these!

Mule Deer Doe and Fawns

Mule Deer is what you will commonly see here on this side of the Cascade Mountains here in Oregon. The Mule Deer are a big species of deer here in the USA and do blend right in with their surroundings.

Seeing a Doe with more then one fawn is a neat thing to see! The fawns being so cute and all with their spots! These two look rather young.

At this moment they all just stop and look at us for they are curious too! Then like a flash they are off on the run!

Scrub Jay Playing With Food

Meet the Scrub Jay that this article will be featuring! I ran across these images as I was in my archive on another project, however going through the series I just had to laugh and it might bring a smile your face as well?

The feature scrub jay I said on twitter was a, "she", though going through the series this looks and acts more like a juvenile playing with it's food!

Assassin Fly Robber Fly

Meet the Robber Fly or Assassin Fly. This one was following me around in a part of the High Desert we were at. Guy and the dogs of course did not see it, so when Guy asked what I was doing I told him what I found.

This rather large insect seamed to give off that don't mess with me attitude. I really do not know how to explain it. This insect had nothing to worry about I had no intentions of picking it up.

Turkey Vulture Feeding In The Ochoco Mountains

Meet the Turkey Vulture of North America. This is a graphic wildlife post. Please stop now if you do not like seeing wildlife feeding.

While up in the Ochoco Mountains here in Oregon we came across Turkey Vultures. Rather a common thing to see here in our part of Oregon. All together there was oh half a dozen or more vultures. With that said, the bird who stayed on their meal just was not all to thrilled about leaving, and who am I to argue?
