A Sunny Autumn Day in Central Oregon


Hooray! I awoke to a beautiful morning in Central Oregon. A little nip in the air and crystal-clear views in every direction.

Having a mule deer tag, I decided to spend the day on, and to the east, of Green Ridge. The Ridge is a steep fault scarp rising 2,000 feet above the eastern banks of the Metolius River.

After spending a few hours hunting along the ridgetop, I took a drive to an overlook of Billy Chinook Reservoir. Along the way a mule deer doe and several wild turkeys amused me for awhile.

What a beautiful part of the world!
