Balancing Rocks

The July 4th weekend was picture perfect, so we went out to Cove Pallisades State Park to see the balancing rocks. I always say, "There's not a whole lot of ugly in Oregon," because one vista after another, most of Oregon is breathtaking. Every region is different: the coast, the Valley, the Gorge, the Cascades, Central Oregon and Eastern Oregon. With that said, Cove Pallisades and the balancing rocks is one of the best views yet. Just awesome. Clicking on any photo will give you a larger view

Along the Metolius River. The forest fire revealed the
balancing rocks standing sentry over the awesome landscape in
the lower right corner of the photo

Lizard. Aww, cute.

Snow-capped Cascades in the distance made the view even
more stunning than it already was.

The tops are separate rocks balancing on their columns

Visitors left their own creations of balancing rocks everywhere.
Here was my contribution.

Touted as one of Oregon's hidden jewels, it most certainly is. Have you discovered any hidden gems lately?

Version 2.0 of my website is up and running. Go check it out. http://www.mpaxauthor.com/ New poll up: Which spaceship would you most like to travel on? Can learn more about me. Discussing Syfy original movies at Spacedock 19 under the 'News' menu. No longer a character limit and set up like comments.

My web genius had the great idea to use a wordpress engine with the website. This way, I have more control and can change things around without bugging him about it. I really like it. You can also read this blog there. Thanks to Bill for all the hard work and the brilliant ideas for version 2.0. He has a brilliant history site: http://williampax.com/
