Winter Drive III

This last photo is taken from a location out in Summer Lake Wildlife Refuge. This is the Fremont Rim. Named after an important military expedition back in the 1800's. These are the last of the natural forest trees, because the landscape turns into the Great Basin High Desert that goes east to the Rocky Mountains. Yes, I giving everybody an ecology/botany lesson about the vegetation in this part of Oregon.
