I live in Southern Oregon. This picture was taken last weekend at about 5000 ft. Simply put, we need more snow. I am concerned about what July and August will look like if we don’t get more snow. . . . . . . #weneedsnow #westbysouthwest #pnw #bestoforegon #realpnw #pnwonderland #pnwadventuresquad #pnwisbeautiful #oregonexplored #oregonisbeautiful #gopnwlife #pnwparadise #optoutside #amateurphotography #optoutsideoregon #oregon #oregonlife #traveloregon #conqueroregon #bestoforegon #exploreoregon #itsyouroregon #oregonnw #southernoregon #reflection #northumpquariver #winter #snow #snowy #pinetrees

Some people find God in a church. Some people find God in a temple. Some people find God in a mosque. I often find God on nights like this, staring in awe and wonder at the amazing things I have the privilege of experiencing. I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world. . . . . . . #westbysouthwest #pnw #bestoforegon #realpnw #pnwonderland #pnwadventuresquad #pnwisbeautiful #oregonexplored #oregonisbeautiful #gopnwlife #pnwparadise #optoutside #amateurphotography #optoutsideoregon #oregon #oregonlife #traveloregon #conqueroregon #bestoforegon #exploreoregon #itsyouroregon #oregonnw #southernoregon #pinetrees #stars #night #longexposure

This golden hour produced awesome highlights on the waves.

One of the first things you’ll notice is the color of the water. The topaz blue color of the water is almost iridescent – like a blue anti-freeze. The water is so clear that is seems to be only about 5 ft deep – yet closer inspection will reveal that in many spots its over 30 ft deep. So pure in fact that you’d swear the water wasn’t moving – yet at the end of this glass like pond – a volume of water rushes out as the McKenzie River is reborn. . . . #pnw #bestoforegon #realpnw #pnwonderland #pnwadventuresquad #pnwisbeautiful #oregonexplored #oregonisbeautiful #gopnwlife #pnwparadise #optoutside #amateurphotography #optoutsideoregon #oregon #oregonlife #traveloregon #conqueroregon #bestoforegon #exploreoregon #itsyouroregon #oregonnw #southernoregon #reflection #winter #snow #pinetrees #hiking #riverscape #river #moss #mckenzieriver

Douglas Fir giants. The economy of central and southern Oregon is still somewhat dependent on these gentle giants. I appreciate what they give us, but I also appreciate the grandeur they so easily exhibit. #pnw #bestoforegon #realpnw #pnwonderland #pnwadventuresquad #pnwisbeautiful #oregonexplored #oregonisbeautiful #gopnwlife #pnwparadise #optoutside #amateurphotography #optoutsideoregon #oregon #oregonlife #traveloregon #conqueroregon #bestoforegon #exploreoregon #itsyouroregon #oregonnw #southernoregon #pinetrees #douglasfir #moss #northumpqua

Mt Thielsen, known as the lightning rod of the cascades, sits at 9,184 ft in elevation. It displays all its glory and majesty near Diamond Lake and Crater Lake National Park.

Is there anything better than a good friend who is willing to go take pictures at the drop of a hat? I think not.

I know everyone has moved on from autumn, but I am having a hard time letting go of the beauty. September is a long time away. In Oregon, autumn lasts a long long time. This was taken December 1.

1•16•18 Winter warms my heart, it’s purest snows, iced over waters, and frosted trees have always captivated my inner warmth. I reflect in the depth of winter.. I realize that there is in me an invincible summer. Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the my cold red cheeks. I don't always notice whether it's winter or summer when I’m happy. Even in winter isolated patch of snow has a special quality. #optoutsideoregon #amandaloveseachofyou at Rogue River, Oregon
