Sometimes I still regret not being in Korea, but there is a lot of beautiful and interesting places in Oregon too. This page will show pics from the now-fading autumn in Klamath County, Oregon. The next will feature springtime in the area around my old home in Mungyeong-shi. I passed some days around Chiloquin in October, visiting several places in the vicinity.
The country is pretty wide-open in this area – there is a small subdivision just to the east of here, but the views in the Wood River Refuge look over marsh and ranchland and mountains. The snowberries in the second photo are abundant and juicy but not very tasty. They are edible however.
Above Chiloquin the Sprague River runs mostly slow and quiet. Trees and clouds reflected in the water.
Go upstream a mile or so from Collier State Park and drive a network of sandy tracks. At the end you’ll find the Williamson Gorge. A trail goes up the canyon for a while, finally disappearing into willows and marsh grasses.
Went up to Crater Lake one day – climbed to a mountain viewpoint on the west side of the loop road. A couple days later the first snow of the season fell, closing the loop road till next June. The snow-covered mountains surrounding Crater Lake are visible in the distance.
