Here are some random leftover shots from my trip to Oregon.
This gray squirrel toyed with me, running from tree to tree but making sure I followed as he looked back at me from his high perch.
I loved the look of this gaillardia, or blanket flower, in a planter we saw on a walk in the quaint little village of Sisters, Oregon.
New bird houses for sale at an antique store in Sisters.
Pines in the morning sun in the RV Park in La Pine.
A golden-mantled ground squirrel at Newberry Crater. We always called them chipmunks but I learned that chipmunks, (including Alvin, I assume) live only on the east coast.
Purple scabiosa, or pincushion flower, is lovely in a planter at East Lake Resort.
A rufous hummingbird perched atop a feeder it is guarding from rival hummers at East Lake Resort.
