very good photo! LIKE!
Thanks GSPalm. I walk my dog in this park. Funny how things change. I took these photos last April and when I walk by there now they look different.
Ooooops! Thanks for the correction!
"This campground is just like stepping back 50 years, the way camping used to be."
So is getting there! It's not an easy place to get to, but certainly uncrowded once you do!
Have you been there?
John, you are most welcome! I read all these discussions yesterday and kind of chuckled a bit. :) I'm glad you and Debron have the knowledge of the area and knew it was Coffin Mountain and where it was exactly located in GE. I live in Gresham and have only been to Detroit Lake that one time, so I had never seen this mountain until then. Thanks for all the detailed information. I don't think anyone who views my picture in the future will have any problem finding it on GE! ;-)
Thanks Dragon. Baja has some incredibly beautiful sunrises. The only problem is they come too early!
Unfortunately, this shot was taken with a cheap film camera. I had two cameras on my trip - a nice Olympus 35mm and the cheap point-and-shoot. I was well into my trip before I realized the 35mm did not have any film in it! Fortunately, I had been taking pictures with both cameras so I didn't lose everything!
This picture is a scan of the hard-copy print. It's low quality and very grainy. I think that's why it was not selected for Google Earth, though I've seen worse on Google Earth.
The boat is a Norsea 27 belonging to Ray and Naomi Sanders of Silverton. It is a very nice boat.
I believe it is posted slightly out of position on the lake. The picture was taken up what we call (incorrectly) Kinney Creek Arm though it's really Heater Creek.
Go left (NW) from where the photo is placed and take a left around the next point. This is Kinney Creek arm of the lake. Then take the next left (heading SE) and this is Heater Creek. The falls, and the boat are at the head of the creek.
