memories camping…

Before propane stoves, there were white gas stoves on the end of the picnic table. Before that my Dad cooked over an open fire on a make shift grill. Great memories learning camp craft or taking the family to the Wallowa’s, Ochocho’s, Cascades, Crooked R., Snake R., B.C.

looking back…

Some 50 years ago, I started fly fishing the Crooked River in Central Oregon. My family and friends enjoyed many camping trips in the canyon back in the day…the river always runs off color but has many beautiful trout. My sons all caught some of their first trout on this river.

Here’s a pic of my youngest son, Tony many years ago.

Solitude & Self-reflection…

“By all means use sometimes to be alone. Salute thyself; see what thy soul doth wear.”   George Herbert

East Lake (Oregon) at dusk. A distant forest fire & winds brought the smokey haze into the area.

time to think…

“The greatest gift of life on the mountain is time. Time to think or not think, read or not read, scribble or not scribble — to sleep and cook and walk in the woods, to sit and stare at the shapes of the hills.” Philip Connors

Chimney Rock (Crooked River)

The Crooked River is a tailwater fishery SE of Prineville, Oregon. One spot we frequently camped at was below Chimney Rock along the river. Great fly fishing and usually quite private. This image is from 1991.

don’t include the swooping bats & mosquitos…time seems to mitigate the downsides and the good times remain…especially with a photo

Young love…

“The heart has its reasons that reason knows nothing of.” Blaise Pascal, Pensées, 1670

As an aside, I have recently been posting images taken by family members (son’s, nieces, brother in law, granddaughter, daughter & friends). I enjoy sharing their visions, which seem rooted in the outdoors (gardening, camping, hiking). The image above is from my niece, Monet of her sister (Lauren) & significant other (Zach) in Central Oregon camping.
