A rather unique winter in Central Oregon with some very cold, snowy weather that has endured for a few months. I hope you enjoy the images I captured below.

Waterfalls along the North Umpqua River

These are photo albums of the images I captured during visits to this fabulous area during July and August 2016.

Included in this imagery is:

Susan Creek Falls, Clearwater Falls, Watson Falls, and Whitehorse Falls. All are located in the Umpqua National Forest – along Oregon’s Highway 138 between Diamond Lake and Roseburg, Oregon.

This stretch is also designated as an Oregon Scenic Byway aka  part of the Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway.

The Steamboat Inn

Nestled on the north shore of the North Umpqua River is one of the gems of the Pacific Northwest – the Steamboat Inn. If you blink, you might miss it as the presence on Highway 138 is surrounded by gorgeous plant life.

Steamboat Inn is noted for – among many things – it’s superb location on the edge of one of the most scenic rivers in the U.S. – The North Umpqua River.  It is the headquarters for fly fisherpersons who come to embrace the challenge of the trout, steelhead and salmon fishing the North Umpqua uniquely offers.

The Umpqua National Forest surrounds Steamboat Inn. You can hike the North Umpqua Trail, visit Susan Creek Falls, and watch Salmon and Steelhead surmount the falls at the Swiftwater Park area a few miles away.

The accommodations,  fine dining, wines, chef, innkeepers and staff are first class. The fly shop and guide services are 5 Star.

Yet, I am always mesmerized by the gardens at the Steamboat Inn. On recent trips in July and August 2016, I captured the images I am SHARING LINKS TO BELOW of the phenomenal flora that inhabits this paradise.
