Scenes from Polk County
I love February in Oregon. It is so full of the promise of spring and yet reminders that it is still winter. These are scenes all within 12 miles of home taken on a recent sunny afternoon.
Beauty can be found at Beckenridge Winery, even in the winter.
I loved the play of sun and shadow on the hills around Basket Slough.
Filbert orchards are most beautiful without leaves, I have decided.
Here is another one of Basket Slough.
The Falls at Falls City are powerful and thundering with the winter rains pouring over them.
