Nature Paints the Hills

Near Mitchell is one of the premier showcases of Oregon.

From a rich palette Mother Nature paints the landscape with colors unlike anywhere else in the world.

A photographer’s delight with endless variations as the sun moves through the sky.

Truly a beautiful place to visit.

  1. Wow. Just wow.


  2. John: when exactly did you travel here? Looks like it might be a good place to visit in the winter.


  3. Gorgeous! It’s so tactile I just want to reach out and touch the screen to run my fingers over the rock surface.


  4. Your mule deer look a lot like my white-tailed deer.
    Only….I think the mule deer have bigger ears.


    • Mule deer do have bigger ears. In fact, I believe that’s where their name comes from. And, unlike white-tailed deer, mule deer stot when danger is near. It looks like a pogo stick on four legs, but they can cover a lot of territory quickly.
