Scenery: Riverside Campground (Mt. Hood, OR)

These are pictures from our campsite at Riverside Campground in the Mt. Hood National Forest. The first photo, with the large log sticking out above the river, is right at our campsite site. What a gorgeous spot!

The next shot is from farther down river, you can see the log in the background on the left. The river was so clean and clear you could easily see trout swimming around 8+ feet below the surface.

The last picture is of a Phantom Orchid I found while on a hike away from camp. I am really fascinated by these unusual plants. They completely lack chlorophyl and are entirely reliant on a fungus that grows around it's root structure to acquire nutrients from the soil.

Your photographic skills are great! I love Oregon's beauty, don't you?

If any of you have a chance to take the Oregon Scenic Bypass, do. It's the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byways, more commonly known as "highway of the waterfalls". It is just amazing.
Here's the link to enjoy. The summer is great, but fall is my favorite time in this area.

Tokatee Falls is on the second page.

Thank you!
Yes, I love Oregon's gorgeous scenery. Everywhere I go there is something lovely to take a picture of. I know about the Scenic Bypass but I haven't done it yet. Maybe in the Autumn. :-)
