Amusing stories of travels throughout Oregon's beautiful–and sometimes not-so-accessible–scenic areas, from the perspective of a not-so-athletic photographer.

Of Waterfalls and Llama

Our weekend at Fairview Peak did not result in the spectacular sunset or sunrise pictures I had been hoping for. My husband and I had been up on the tower twice before, but neither of us remembered just how windy it is up there. Taking pictures from the tower was limited by the lighting conditions, although I did get some interesting shots.

Windy Weekend on Fairview Peak
Thursday, November 13th, 2003

We spent a weekend in the Umpqua National Forest, staying two nights at the Fairview Peak Watch Tower. Apparently, this past summer was the first year that the tower has been available for rent. We learned about it in July, and late October was the earliest we could get reservations.
