    Pictures from a 2 hr. road trip to my stepmoms house. Only one picture was taken away from road. I tried to show what you would see through the windshield or side window. These pics were at the end of the trip, this area is in the Coast Range just outside of Mist. Body of water shown is the Nestucca River.

    Is all that your corner of the world???


    It's so.....GREEN!

    and sooooo open!

    and soooo beautiful...

    Is it right near where you live? (and is this where you give me directions in time , not distance?) ;)


    Thanks CC....Gorgeous!

    :eek: Now if all those pictures were from the same plot of land and that was a thousand acres and selling for a dollar I would buy it rapidly. Great scenery. Makes me want a ranch in that neck of the woods. :D

    Yep! :lol:

    It's not the distance that determines your ETA, it's the road that you must travel.
    LOTS of these:[​IMG]

    2 largest land owners in the area pictured are timber companies and the gubberment.

    There are a lot more photo opportunities than what I posted to be seen in Oregon's Temperate Rain Forest.

    Go to the head of the class.

    If you want to see a herd I'll have to wait till November. Last time I went out of season I didn't see squat at the Refuge. I guess the best time to catch 'em is Nov.- April, which is the wettest part of the year. It RAINS a lot of there.

    Remember; distance is time.
    Time is measured from my doorstep to each location, not location to location.
