    This is the area behind our house (wish we could see it from our house but can't). This area mostly is Newberry Crater. It's a National Monument. The whole of Newberry Crater includes 2 lakes and Paulina Peak -- The Peak is part of the huge volcano that blew about 1900 yrs ago. It's like Crater Lake, however, it has 2 lakes instead of one and they're shallower than Crater Lake. It became a monument in 1990. On the edge of the monument they're doing drilling to see if geothermal heat can be obtained. It was national news late in the summer. I'm praying they don't change the "landcape"!!!!! We live about 3/4 mile from where DH was standing to get that first picture.
    The pics are of Paulina Peak and a bridge at Paulina Creek. Paulina Creek is all run-off from the snow off the peak.

    Can I steal your photographs to make some art? They are wonderful and unique!

    This makes me wish I still had my cabin in LaPine. Is that the little deschutes river?
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    MaryKatherine -- You most certainly CAN use the pictures for art!!!! Be sure to let us see the results!

    GraceMooreLinker -- Cabins are available at a LOW price here right now! It's discouraging to see how the prices have dropped! More so than in Bend........ That's Paulina Creek that comes down from Paulina Peak....all snow runoff. Runs east to west.....and soaks into the ground before it gets to Hwy 97 (about 5 miles or so from Little Deschutes). It ultimately in 100 yrs will end up in the underground lake that becomes our well water. GOOD water. You know, you've given me an idea. I think tomorrow we should go for a drive up past Little Deschutes and see how close we can get to Wikiup (lol not far I'm sure)....I'll take more pics!!!!!!! Happy New Year!

    Wonderful pictures! Love the snow at first and then it just seems winter last too long for me. My old bones just don't seem to warm up after I've been outside.

    So beautiful!!!!!! Thank you for posting. Just read a novel with very descriptive word pictures of Oregon. Now I have seen some of the beauty described in the novel. Again, thank you and Happy New Years.

    Your photos look like Hallmark cards. It is beautiful but I'm glad not to have all that snow to cope with. I live in Va. and a flake and a flurry sends everyone into a panic. Then they go to the grocery store and buy up all the bread and milk.
