Oregon Pioneers & Johnson Creek

If you have followed SwittersB for a bit, you know I love to stroll through Oregon’s Pioneer cemeteries. There are several in the Portland area that often give a view of the founders of Portland. The other day, I was walking around a cemetery in SE Portland. There I found a grave marker for Jacob and Martha Jane Lee Johnson. The marker described them as Oregon Pioneers and as the namesakes for Johnson Creek that flows across the southern part of the city from Gresham into the Willamette River. It was a fascinating discovery in an unassuming cemetery, in an unremarkable section. If one cares about local history, such cemeteries are interesting. It also makes you consider life, death, remembrance, purpose and your place in life.

Desertscape: Rock formations (6 images to enjoy)

I have a draw to rocks and rock formations as much as the sky,clouds, water, trees or flowers. Much like the why’s re the attraction to the sky or a river, I can’t clearly explain the draw. The interest in rock formations varies with size, angles and lines, scale, shapes and colors. Whether it is shelter, respite from the wind, the sun, a vantage point or high ground, it attracts.

In Joshua Tree NP, the rock formations were most often a draw to the rock climbers. Being one that may get part way up, my problem is getting down…so I don’t venture to far up a rock pile, let alone a vertical face.

Anyway, the contrast of rock formations in a desertscape is  always fascinating. Maybe you have that same interest as well.
