Get to Know Oregon Astoria’s Backdoor Byway

 

It’s time for a wonderful whistle-stop tour of waterfalls and wildlife with a noted landscape photographer along Astoria’s little-known “backdoor byway.”

Little trails often lead to big discoveries, and that’s when a camera comes in handy for Oregon’s premier landscape photographer Steve Terrill. We strolled along the short graveled trail at Lee Wooden County Park – just off State Highway 202 – and spotted the numerous little signs of the seasonal change; mostly measured by the colorful maple and alder leaves that were in a state of free fall. Terrill called the blizzard of leaves the “little parts that make a bigger, better picture.” Terrill likes to have fun along the little-known backdoor byway that connects the valley to the coast through the heart of the Oregon Coast range.

He likes to hook up with Highway 202 just off Highway 26 and slowly wind through the mountains.  Lee Wooden Park is one of many photo opportunities that Terrill likes to explore on this road. He is especially drawn to the stunning and gorgeous Fishhawk Falls that races across the exposed and jagged ancient basalt. “I capture what nature puts out in front of me,” said the famed photographer. “That is really all I do. Anyone can. Just open your eyes and look at the different things that really make this a natural backdrop for my photography.”

Just a couple miles down the road, large elk lounge across the grassy meadows of the Jewell Wildlife Area. Terrill makes the many easy-to-reach viewing sites a must-stop on his trip. He scanned the scene, searched for movement and soon found the life in the landscape. Two yearling elk rose up on hind legs and boxed at each other with their front legs – it was an elk sparring match as the two youngsters tested each other.

It‘s interesting to see one of Oregon’s premier landscape photographers – now on his chosen path for more than three decades – working a favored haunt that anyone can visit. It’s also fun to pick out the little things that he does to make his photos special.

“First, a tripod – it’s an absolute must and so is the cable release,” said Terrill. “Just for vibration and to be on the safe side because if I’m cold, I could shake the scene and ruin the shot. That’s how I shoot.”

Does he ever! Here’s proof: 2013 is year nine for Steve Terrill’s “All Oregon” Calendar.  His annual project pays homage to his home state – shot entirely in Oregon by the native son who has it printed here too.

“Well, I was born and raised in Portland and I just absolutely love Oregon! If I can keep the money and the jobs – even just a little bit because we’re not a huge company by any means, but if I can keep that in Oregon then I think I’m helping a little bit.”

A half hour down the byway, Terrill helps himself to all the scenery surrounding one of his favorite waterfalls in all of the state: Youngs River Falls. Don’t forget to peer into the shallows just below the falls; mottled black and grey, several 30-pound salmon have muscled their way back to Youngs River, their birthplace and now the end of the line as they continue their cycle of life.

This byway unwinds along Youngs Bay at Astoria, and Terrill finds that each mile of the trip is wonderful and that so much beauty is so close to so many people.

“If folks only take the time to look – they’ll see what I see too! In my heart, I love to capture images of Oregon and I like to share them with people. I am really blessed to make a living at it too.”

LaPine State Park

If you want to immerse yourself in a subalpine pine forest where the air has that high-Cascades tang; to stay in a clean, quiet campground next to a twisting, cold river brimming with trout (and a nearby legendary fly fishing spot) and surrounded by miles of waiting-to-be-explored wilderness; to sit smack in the middle of dozens of high-mountain lakes (in winter, near some of the best ski-spots in the land); to see eagles or red-tailed hawks grabbing breakfast right in front of you; or, to just sit in a campsite pondering what you might do tomorrow …

OREGON COAST FAMILY FRIENDLY CAMPING DESTINATIONS

Beverly Beach State Park 

Beverly Beach is popular for a reason! Like magic, a well-known walkway goes under the highway and emerges to the long expanse of sandy beach extending from Yaquina Head (you can see the lighthouse from here) to the headlands of Otter Rock. When the weather cooperates, kites color the air and whip in the wind. Bring a bucket and build a sand castle! Surfers often head to the north beach, while folks looking for fossils head south.

Cape Lookout State Park

Cape Lookout State Park can be reached by traveling an hour and a half west of Portland through the scenic Wilson River pass. Along the way stop and enjoy waterfalls, scenic views and some great fishing.

A popular campground and day-use area, Cape Lookout is located on a sand spit between Netarts Bay and the ocean, giving you a terrific view of the ocean with easy access to the beach. Beachcombing is popular here, and the park is reputedly a good place to find glass floats. More than eight miles of hiking and walking trails wind through a lush old-growth forest. The Cape Lookout trail follows the headland for more than two miles. A bench is located at the end of the trail. Enjoy the view! You might see a whale or two along with other wildlife.

Get To Know Oregon Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge Flook Lake

 

Diversity in habitat creates variety in wildlife. Hart Mountain Refuge’s diverse landscape and habitat are alive with over 300 species of wildlife, primarily birds (239) species) and mammals (42 species). Mammals such as pronghorn, deer, coyotes, kangaroo rats, marmots, bobcats, ground squirrels, and rabbits are generally year-round residents of the refuge while most birds come and go with the seasons. Reptiles include rattlesnakes, bull snakes, yellow-bellied racers, and sagebrush lizards.

Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge is located on a massive fault block ridge that ascends abruptly nearly three-quarters of a mile above the Warner Valley floor in a series of rugged cliffs, steep slopes, and knife-like ridges. Visitors experience spectacular views of the beautiful Warner Valley Wetlands while ascending the west side entrance road to headquarters.The west face of the mountain is cut by several deep gorges. Hart, Potter, and DeGarmo canyons, the most rugged, extend from the valley floor to the top of the main ridge. The east side of the mountain is less precipitous, descending in a series of rolling hills and low ridges to the sagebrush-grasslands typical of southeastern Oregon and the Great Basin.

The rugged diversity of the terrain creates a rich mix of habitat types, home to more than 300 species of wildlife. Featured species include pronghorn antelope, California bighorn sheep, mule deer, sage grouse, and redband trout. The 278,000-acre refuge is one of the most expansive wildlife habitats in the arid West free of domestic livestock.

Since its creation in 1936 as a range for remnant herds of pronghorn antelope, management of the refuge has broadened to include conservation of all wildlife species characteristic of this high desert habitat and restoration of native ecosystems for the public’s enjoyment, education, and appreciation.

Getting There . . . Hart Mountain National Antelope Refuge is located 65 miles northeast of Lakeview, Oregon, off Highway 140.

From Lakeview, where the Sheldon-Hart Mountain Complex office is located in the Post Office Building, take U.S. Highway 395 North about 5 miles. Turn right on Oregon State Highway 140 and go east 15 miles, then turn left at the sign to the refuge. Go 19 miles to Plush and continue through Plush, then turn right at the sign to the refuge. Follow the Hart Mountain Road to the refuge headquarters.

From Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, go south on Oregon State Highway 205 through Frenchglen and continue another 10 miles, then turn west (right) at the sign to the refuge. Travel 36 miles to the refuge headquarters.

Flook Lake

A moderate hike leads to the petroglyph canyon at Flook Lake.

I suggest warming up, though, with an easier walk to the better known rock art of Petroglyph Lake.

If you go, be warned that there are no actual trails in this part of the high desert. Only rough roads lead to the starting points for these walks, and they’re about as far from civilization as you’ll find in Oregon. Although rain is rare, the treeless landscape is often raked by windstorms, lightning, blazing heat and snow flurries. The best weather is perhaps in May and June, when wildflowers join the sagebrush.

A good base for your explorations is Hart Mountain’s Hot Springs Campground, with free campsites in a creekside oasis of quaking aspen. The hot springs are also free, with a natural rock pool shielded by low rock masonry walls.

Get to Know Oregon Trappist Abbey in Oregon Wine Country

 

 

Trappist Abbey in Oregon Wine Country  

 

In Yamhill County, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Trappist Abbey, it is more!

The Abbey’s connection to Oregon’s wine story is unique! Father Richard Layton explained that they do not grow grapes or make wine at the Abbey, but they store the bottled wine, thousands and thousands of cases of wine – on pallets that soar to the ceiling.

“We are an order of contemplative prayer and meditation,” said Father Layton. “We don’t work in parishes or schools or hospitals – that’s why our means of support are rather odd compared to other religious orders.”

More than 130 Oregon wineries store their wines inside a 40,000-square-foot warehouse. Father Layton added that the space is critical to wineries that must keep their products safe and secure:

“We are exactly what the wine industry needs in Oregon: warehouse space – and that was true back in 1991 when we started storing wines for a handful of wineries – we had the electricity, the ventilation and air condition and furnaces to keep the space a constant 60 degrees.”

The Abbey offers even more service to the wine industry: machinery that labels the wine bottles too.

Wine technician Jennifer Blanco explained: “We have so many wineries in the Willamette Valley that store with us and many take advantage of our labeling services. We could have a couple hundred in a year!”

Blanco added with a chuckle, “It’s also a really great workout because you’re lifting cases of wine all day long.”

And there’s more to this remarkable story – the Trappist Abbey’s has a bakery that turns out fruit cakes and date nut cakes that are world famous and based upon prized recipes that were created in the early 80s.

Father Richard said their weekly production keeps up with demand.

“About 1,000 cakes – one pound cakes – and we shrink wrap each and put them into boxes that go into our walk in cooler – they are sent out or stored for the holiday season.”

The Abbey’s 1,400 acres of mixed Doug Fir forest and Oak Savannah offer miles of hiking trails with stunning views. It is The sort of place that is perfect for getting away from it all – and you can.

“We do have retreat units and people are able to make a 1 or 2 day retreat or a week-long retreat. They are able to go to the chapel and listen to the monks chant and on a beautiful day like today it’s a great place to be. A lot of silence, a lot of solitude – that’s what the grounds have to offer here.”
