Base Camp: Frenchglen
Monday 16 April 2012   —   Category: Outings
It’s the evening, and I’m sitting in my room at the historic Frenchglen Hotel (built in the mid-1920s). This is my “base camp” as I spend four days of my seven-day trip exploring the area, and taking LOTS of photos!


Sorry that I don’t have my own photo of the hotel — I had to borrow this one from the Web. It was after sunset when I arrived last evening, it was raining when I left at 7:00 this morning, it was raining when I got back at 4:15 this afternoon, and it’s been raining ever since! I came to “dry” Eastern Oregon to escape the Willamette Valley rain, and my first day here it rained a good part of the day!

I’m so busy driving and taking photos that I really don’t have time to write blog articles. Most of the details will have to wait until I get back. Yesterday I drove 363 miles in 14 hours (LOTS of photo stops!), and took 623 pictures. Today I drove 201 miles in 9 hours and took 439 pictures. Not bad for a rainy day!

Because the landscapes are so vast in this part of the state, I've been capturing many of the scenes as a series of 10 to 20 photos, which I will combine later into quite a few panoramas. I even took a 360 degree series of shots from the top of Pine Mountain.

I've taken some really nice photos during these past two days, but it’s going to take a LOT of work to make them ready to share on this Web site. And I've got to get ready for bed, so I can get up early and drive and shoot a lot more tomorrow! So for now, I’ll leave you with this photos of a deer which I took first thing this morning not far from the hotel.
