White River at Keeps Mill

Apparently, Keeps Mill was a stop on an alternative route around Mt. Hood on the Oregon trail. If that’s true, how people got wagons here, I do not know. The hillsides rise quite quickly from both sides of the river. The White River flows from the White Glacier on Mt Hood. Keeps Mill is a primitive, secluded campground at the end of Forest Road 2120. The last mile is pretty narrow and down a steep, exposed hillside with a really tight switchback.

Overlooking Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge

A nice place to relax within an easy drive from Alamosa; dirt road is sketchy in places though. This view is from the Bluff Overlook. I drew this on my iPad.

Badger Lake on Mt. Hood National Forest

Badger Lake in Mt. Hood National Forest, was quite dry when I was there at the end of the summer. I might try to get back this winter if the roads are open. Ice skating anyone? 🙂

Badgers at Badger Lake?

I looked and looked, but did not see a one. Not even any tracks or other signs. Sigh. Maybe next time. A badger is one of the few mammals that I have not seen in the wild.

My painting shows a view the campground at Badger Lake in Mt. Hood National Forest; west of Portland, Oregon. It was from my September trip. Check out the story; a couple of blog posts back. The red bushes are very dried out huckleberry plants.

Enjoy!
