Birding, Painting

Off to Smith Rock – Day 1 (Friday)

So Friday I left work and drove over to Redmond.

startI made pretty good time, though there was an accident along the highway that held traffic up for a while. Fortunately, a little parade of geese passed by to keep us entertained.

geeseOnce passing over the mountains, the landscape shifted to agriculture in a big way.

Once I found my AirBNB stay, I headed over to Smith Rock to scope out the next day’s painting. Along the way I admired various wildlife.

But Smith Rock was the superstar of the evening.

Still, I ask you. Would you climb this thing at night?

All told, I took 236 photos this day.
