Winter at Rough & Ready Creek

_DSC9712B_32bitSteve, Pam, and I were off to a high water showing of the Rough & Ready Creek near Cave Junction, OR, in January of this year.  Most of the year, there is barely a trickle of water here.

Rough & Ready Creek, Oregon

My last photo shoot of 2016 was at one of my favorite places, Rough and Ready Creek near Cave Junction, Oregon.   Pam Cone and I took a day trip up there a couple of days ago.  I’d been talking about it for years.   The temperature was a couple degrees above freezing.  We were prepared and didn’t feel it.   The day before, where I’m standing was under water.  Great timing!   There is high fog in this picture and the mountains in the background are obscured.

Happy New Year!

Fog at Dry Lagoon

This time of year at Dry Lagoon is great.   It’s WET.   It’s also a risky place to visit.  Going north along the lagoon or beach, it’s fine.  But going south, there are some gorgeous rock formations.  If you’re not careful and watching the tides, you’ll either be stranded or have a very long hike via Big Lagoon, 101, then the road back in to Dry Lagoon.  This is one of my favorite places.
