Jewell Oregon

On a cloudy, rainy autumn day I returned to the Jewell Meadows Wildlife Area on the western slopes of the Coastal Mountains. It’s managed by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife to provide winter habitat and supplemental feeding for wild Roosevelt Elk.

A series of open pastures border a paved road, offering good views of up to 200 Elk during winter and spring.

I was lucky enough to spot some Elk fairly close to the road. They are usually far back from the viewing areas.

On the return drive I stopped and took some photos of Vernonia Lake, always a nice spot to visit in the fall.
