I got back from camping around Sisters, Oregon, last night. I wasn't supposed to get back till tomorrow, but there was "an issue" that was making it rather uncomfortable for us to stick around.
The Issue: Daisy nipped the camp host and the back of the leg. She did not rip his jean, nor break the skin. She had been hunting bugs all morning, so the best we can guess is he had a bug on his leg and she went for it. Needless to say, things weren't so great after that point.
But in the time we were there I got plenty of hiking in and lots of pictures.
The moon still showing about 45 minutes before sunrise on Saturday.
The meadow right by camp. We were at just over 6,000 foot elevation and it froze every night and was in the 60's-70's during the day.
And, what is a meadow without wild flowers?
The meadow, by mid day.
The flowers and colors and textures of the meadow coming out.
And the butterflies came out.
As did the toads.
The next morning I left before sunrise to hike up to Three Creeks Lake to get this picture and the panoramic picture at the top of this post.
Later that day I hiked further up to Little Three Creeks Lake. In route there were plenty of wild life...
...and some stunning views.
Finally we got to Little Three Creek Lake.
And I encountered a a relic or two from the past.
If you like the panoramic image at the top, you can see the full sized (7720x1888 10mb) image here. It is of Three Creek Lake and was stitched together from 5 images.
