Metolius/ Camp Sherman

Click on the side bar and join others around the world for more photos of this is My World Tuesday.

I got these out of the archives so that i can continue the trip to Metolius Recreation Area and Camp Sherman. So when going to see The Metolius be sure to stop and visit Camp Sherman

Welcome to the Camp Sherman Store and Fly Shop on the wooded banks of the crystal-clear, spring-fed Metolius River in Camp Sherman, Oregon (population 250). For over 90 years, this has been the community hub, where friends meet to share the day's news, talk about the fishing, stock up on essential supplies, get the fishing report and gear, and enjoy a relaxed pace and neighborly atmosphere rarely found in modern life.

And then check out the History site for some great photos
And then check out the
Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery

This hatchery raises trout, kokanee, and Atlantic salmon. The hatchery is in a park-like setting, with display ponds, interpretive signs, and a viewing platform. There are abundant camping, hiking, and fishing opportunities nearby. Group tours are available with prior arrangements.

I took these photos in "07" as we were driving back from Portland, and took the back roads. Its a popular place. Check out the website for the Fossil Bed. And also the Painted Hills is not far from there. And be sure to stop in the small town of Mitchell and meet Henry the 700 lb bear that lives in a cage

The Painted Hills Unit contains 3,132 acres of scenic marvels unique even in the Pacific Northwest. Located 9 miles northwest of Mitchell, and 75 miles east of Bend, the Painted Hills are visited year-round. Outdoor exhibits and a picnic area are also available for visitors here.Most years, the peak of wildflower season in late April to early May is spectacular.
