Home on the Range

Last weekend we made a trip through eastern Oregon to Vale and Ontario.  This area is truly “high desert” and has its own, unique beauty.

We saw lots of eagles. We didn’t have much time to spend stopping for photos on the way to Ontario, and taking photos at 65 mph is not easy. But I managed to get a couple of eagle shots, antelope and the beautiful scenery.february-25-2017nature4443 february-25-2017nature4462 february-25-2017nature4468 february-26-2017nature4505

On our return trip we had time to stop, but the weather wasn’t very cooperative. We hit several snow squalls that lasted quite a while. We saw more eagles and hawks, but not much more.february-26-2017nature4523 february-26-2017nature4530 february-26-2017nature4567

I need to go back when I have more time to stop for a while.
