Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I just got back from Sunriver. Unfortunately I was saddled with taking the dogs, meaning I couldn't stop and take photos in route. It's a 4 hour drive that I wanted to get through without letting them out because once out it would have been like pulling teeth reinserting them in the crate/cab.

While there I went to the High Desert Museum and got a fun pictures, but I really wanted to get a sunset or sunrise picture from the top of the butte at Lava Lands Park. Unfortunately the park hours are 8am-5pm, no exception. I went out via 26, which took me over Mt. Hood and down through Warm Springs. Then I returned via Sisters and Salem. Both are immensely beautiful drives.

But here are some of the pictures I did manage to get...



The High Desert Museum is also a center to take care of wounded animals, including several variety of raptors. They made it very clear that they are not a zoo, but a recover center. They do not breed the bird, just tend to wounded ones and ones unable to be returned to the wild.

Just a heads up for those that might try to call me. With my usual deft, grace, and style I put my cell phone through the spin cycle. It is currently drying, in vain hope that I might not have to replace it.

Anyway, if I don't respond to calls or voice mail, this is why.
