My World

I was shown this Tuesday meme by my friend, Misty Dawn, and decided I would join the fun every so often. So enjoy my first post here.

The high desert area of central Oregon isn't known for it's storms during the summer, but come Autumn and Winter, along with Spring, Pacific Ocean born storm systems move into the Pacific Northwest and slam up against the Cascade Mountains. There they sit, gathering power until they came burst forth onto the desert and bring dramatic images to anyone with a camera.

The panorama below is four images stitched together from Roberts Field in Redmond, Oregon, the main airport on the east side of the Cascade mountains. Some of the cinder cones of the volcanic peaks can seen below the clouds.

If you enjoy what you see here, got to the My World homepage and check out some of the other participants. You're find many more players here.

That is a beautiful photo, and a very imformative post. I'm sure I did not know there was a high desert region in Oregon! I knew Washington had a more arid region because of friends there, but did not think about that extending southward.

Ash: Welcome to your first post on My World, it is really nice to see a familiar name as I travel around the web. I will be waiting to see more of your part of Oregon. This would have also been a great photo for our other site Sky Watch. I await seeing you next week at MW and also on CC.
