19 years....

it's been since I've visited here...The Cove Palisades, Lake Billy Chinook. It's about 20 miles away from our new home in the desert....
and it is gorgeous! I won't wait another 19 years.....
anyone have a boat?
" A lake is the landscape's most beautiful and expressive feature. It is earth's eye; looking into which the beholder measures the depth of his own nature." ~ Henry David Thoreau

Boat? Can you not swim? If not, go purchase some floaties & jump on in.

It does look lovely!

This is gorgeous! My dad is a relatively new transplant to Southern Oregon, I'll have to tell him about this spot.

Oh...the desert. And canyons. And water. And sky. And landscapes in general. I need to get back out to the west soon. I absolutely love it. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos; they're gorgeous!
