Vernonia Lake

In mid-winter I returned to the Coastal Range. My first stop was the small town of Vernonia. Just north of downtown is picturesque Vernonia Lake.

The lake was once the mill pond of the Oregon-American Lumber Company, the largest all-electric lumber mill in the world in its day.

Now it’s a recreational lake, and very picturesque.

My next stop was the L.L. “Stub” Stewart Memorial State Park situated next to the Banks-Vernonia Rail Trail.

In the park I spotted some blacktail deer having an afternoon snack. They’re always fun to see.
