I recently finished a large update to the New Images
gallery on my website. This image showcases Smith Rock's huge desert towers under a brilliant starry sky. This spot is particularly special to me, one of my favorite places in Oregon. I've hiked down to the banks of the Crooked River many times in the past few years and have yet to encounter another soul. What I have seen / heard are plenty of eagles (Golden and Bald), river otters, and yelping coyotes – such an awesome place!
