I wish I could have gotten photos of the bobcat, but it was at dusk and he was running along one of those large cave-like divots on the canyon wall. Way too dark, but so cool. There's something about the way that cats move that's so unmistakable.

ps Almost done w/ Goat Song and really loving it. Thank you again.

i'm still in the middle, and man all of the bible references are starting to irk me... i really regret being forced catholic (with all of the obligatory guilt, no questioning,no alternatives, fear, and shame involved) up to the age of 17 or so ("you live under our roof you will follow our rules!!")

ugh ugh bleat....

True, though he does try to mention everything from Kabbalah to Somolian camel herding songs.

I don't get the impression he's a god-fearing man, just one that's refering to what he knows or is easy to find translations of.

But my Catholic upbringing was far less traumatic ;)

... to get to share these beautiful places with you. :)

So, my reactions to your previous post went like this:

OH NO, SHE'S BACK! (did something go horribly wrong?)

OH WHEW, SHE'S BACK! (not so wrong that she can't post thank god)

OH CRAP, SHE'S GONNA BE PISSED. (still something went wrong)

OH, COOL, I GUESS IT'S OKAY. (wow, look at those fricken beautiful photos)

Haha, yeah that's kind of how I feel about the trip. Glad I'm safe, bummed it didn't quite work out like I'd planned, but still happy I got to see some really cool stuff.

I want to try again sometime, but I need to not go alone, possibly try to reach the area from the other end via canoe (though currently the water might be too low for that).

Reeeeally love the variations of light and shadow you've captured in these. Beautiful.

I didn't think they had mountains like this in the PNW- this looks more like Utah or Arizona.

Dylan always looks so happy in your pictures- which are amazing, by the way.

Cool pic of the rattlesnake- how close were you when you snapped that shot?

East of the Cascade mountains, it gets a little dry...I'm told the mountain range is so high that the clouds have trouble getting through to the other side. :-)

Yeah, most Oregonians don't know Oregon has places like this. It's pretty remote and requires a lot of driving to reach. But the beauty of it is that no one goes there, so it's mostly unspoiled and completely quiet.

I was pretty much up in that snake's grill, to be honest. It didn't even move it was so fat and docile. It probably had just eaten and was trying to warm itself in the sun.

Is the crazy road the third from the last of that series?

That's just a footpath.

No photos of the crazy road, alas.

When I was 19, I lived near the southern oregon-idaho border, and thought it was the most godforsaken place in the world. I was too young to appreciate it.

I went to high school in NE Oregon and it was hell for me back then, too, though I certainly did appreciate the natural beauty even then.

Let me know if you're ever headed to *West* Oregon to get shots of the forests....

Date: 2009-09-08 01:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] too.

Eugene, that is.

Funny that I'd meet you via a blog in Massachusetts... :-)

You're a lawyer in Eugene? So is my sister and her husband. Sister is also a judge there.

A judge, really? Circuit court? There are five female judges there, and they're all quite a bit older than your icon looks...

I'm glad the snake had eaten- it does look that close!

Looks like a very wise old owl, and Oh Oh Oh, you didn't photoshop the pelicans...

I reckon they won't let me take the GS on the footpath? 'Sides, the beauty is better with no motors nearby.

Uh, does that sync with "the bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar"?
