When The Visitors All Go Home
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!
The Roads are empty and quiet,
The playground no longer have children laughing and playing.
The boys get to roam with us while I take photographs.
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. Are 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!
This is the flyer the State of Oregon has released for help with this project photographing the state parks. If you too are in Oregon and would like to help out, get in touch!

Hi there Rose,
AND hahahaha, that would be cool if the state would reimburse you for the gas hu haha :0)
Oh those mule deer dont just cross roads in closed parks, buggers will run right into your vehicle on the open roads! Insurance is sold for such things as the deer and elk running into your vehicle, or you into them. If you ever seen a full grown mule deer they are pretty big! I have photographed them on the canyon wall, I wished I could navigate that wall like them haha!
Some parks are open year round, just not the ones that it is dangerous to get to in the winter time like this one I photographed.
I hear your state is one of those folks go to for the winter, or to retire too?
Thank you for coming by and visiting Rose!!
Outstanding photographs - Oregon is so beautiful! Loved the photo with the fantastic views - breathtaking!
... and those mule deer crossing the road:)
Around here the parks never close, but they do change the opening times - the benefits of living in Florida:) I'd love to help out, but somehow I don't think the state would reimburse me for the drive from Florida:) LOL
