When The Visitors All Go Home


When The Visitors All Go Home 1

When the visitors all go home, everything goes quiet. What once was full of people, is now empty. A quiet calmness takes over.



This is the time of the year when trees start to change color.




The mushrooms start to grow.

Several Rabbits feel secure enough to come and have breakfast!

This is usually where dogs get to roam, which is of course empty. The park is closed for the season. I went ahead and signed up to help the State of Oregon photograph such things as the parks. We learned several things, and had quite a time in The Deschutes Campground as well as the Group Campground that were closed. Some other places, however they were not closed just yet.



One thing we were sure to see is the Mule Deer. Our area is thick with them and when the visitors go home, the wildlife and nature take over the parks.

What I got a thrill out of is the views!

From the closed Group Camp AT The Cove Palisades State Park I captured the Petroglyph Rocks from the view I usually do not get,

I would have never gotten these photographs if I did not sign up with the state to enter the closed parks! Sure there is some minor work to do, but well with it in my eyes!
