The Cressler and Bonner building in Cedarville is one of the original buildings in the area. The area being in the northeast corner of California in Surprise Valley. I was cutting through on my way into northwest Nevada and was surprised to find this nice little farming community.
Goose Lake is in the very northeast corner of California, just south of Lakeview, Oregon. There isn’t much water these days … although in the winter/early spring there can be a very shallow covering (some years). You can see a small patch of water in the far right corner.
I was going through photos and when I got to this one, I couldn’t remember anything about this view of a back country road. It fell into place when I enlarged the image and it turned into water … this is a branch of the John Day River in central Oregon.
These pine woods are located in East Central Oregon … a much different kind of woods than around my home in Western Washington. Much drier country resulting in much less undergrowth and mostly all pine instead of the Doug Fir, Hemlock and Cedar of Western Washington.
I have no idea what caused the wavy pattern in the sky on #3. There was some haze, but nothing that was making a visible line while I was taking the photo.
The mountain in the distance is a part of the Mt Jupiter ridge (but not the summit), which runs between the Dosewallips and Duckabush rivers in the Olympic Mountains. I was hiking up the Dosewallips when I caught this opening through the trees giving a view of the high country. The higher ridges were already showing some signs of snowfall.
