Eastern Oregon - Day 4

One of the things that surprised me when we got up into the Steens, was the Aspens replacing the pines.
The addition of all the color was beautiful.
The lower slopes, where it was drier, still had a few junipers.
As you changed altitude, though, the differences in tree species was quite remarkable.

Our next stop was Fish Lake. This would be a good place to go camping ...
there were only 2 other campers there!Apparently it is a popular ice fishing spot in the winter.
People ride their snowmobiles in for a spot of fishing.
I could do that!
