The wildlife of central Oregon persevere in winter to eat and survive.
I caught these images yesterday of a herd in the Lone Pine, Oregon area.

A snow before Thanksgiving 2015 allowed Reggie and I to spend the day AFTER the dump capturing some wonderful winter scenes.
These images are LARGE – VERY HIGH QUALITY ( I shoot with Canon Professional Gear and shoot in RAW vs. jpeg) and are NOT intended to be viewed on a mobile phone.

3. CLICK the arrow on the right side of each image to move to the next image….or click slideshow… Heck, if we met you on the road or in Dubois – invite some friends and neighbors over and enjoy these images together – sit back and soak up the beauty…that’s what my photography is for…to pause and ponder the wonders of the outdoor world that inhabits our lives…(most HDTV’s can access FLICKR and you can roll these images across your big screen in your living room).

We are now home resting comfortably. Still weak and tired from the pneumonia. Doctors say I am looking at December before my strength fully returns. Jacki’s cooking (my wife) is definitely helping out. Planning to spend a month or two in Wyoming next summer/fall (August/September).

Dubois volunteer EMT H.R. Albert arrived about 30 minutes after my 911 call along with Deputy Sheriff Eric Ellington of the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office. In a few minutes, Cindy Dugan, H.R.’s partner arrived with an ambulance. They checked my vitals, lungs and my oxygen readings (oxygen reading was 82). Mr. Albert stated “you are seriously ill and are going to need to be hospitalized immediately.” At that time, a Life Flight helicopter arrived and landed next to my truck. I declined treatment by the Life Flight EMT’s and transport by them (NO insurance coverage). They left. Tracy Ziegler of Dubois arrived to take Reggie home to care for him (never met the woman before – she’s the Dubois resident pet care person) and the Sheriff took my truck to The Longhorn Ranch. Another ambulance arrived and all I remember was rolling over onto another ambulance cot and passing out.
I woke up in the ER in Lander, WY with a team of people doing whatever they were doing to me. They took x-rays, shoved fluid IV’s in me, drew blood, and poured the oxygen to me and began a very aggressive respiratory therapy treatment protocol. They also injected me with steroids, antibiotics and other stuff I can’t even spell. I was admitted to the hospital for emergency treatment of acute pneumonia.
Sometimes, you’ve just gotta show off your dog…my best buddy – Reggie.
He’s one of my favorite photography subjects.
We’ve been together since he was 8 weeks old. He just had his 8th birthday in September 2015. We’re inseparable.
There’s just something about Reggie…I have always cherished. He speaks with his eyes, his posture and his adoring loyalty.
Those who meet Reggie always appreciate how handsome and well-mannered he is. I hope you do too.
