Hoodoos

On a bright, sunny day on the east side of the Cascades, I decided to take a drive by Green Ridge to an overlook of Lake Billy Chinook.

I stopped often to explore the woods.

Near the Lake the landscape was dominated with juniper trees, a few ponderosa pines and plenty of sagebrush.

Above Lake Billy Chinook I spotted a large group of hoodoos with balancing rocks on top. A truly remarkable volcanic landscape.

On the way back, storm clouds moved in and a rainbow popped up.

A nice outing indeed.
