On a cloudy autumn 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.

Mule Deer


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, I spotted many mule deer.

A nice outing indeed.
