Oh to be Back in Oregon

Heading west away from the Snake River we decided to take an easy day riding the perimeter of Phillips Lake near La Grande, OR.  So good to be back in the Ponderosa Pines, the high meadows and the open skies of Oregon.  We spotted two elk, two white tailed deer and osprey.  The lake level was pretty low, it made the Mason Dam look pretty impressive.  The North Shore trail terminated at a chain link fence, so we had to do a short bushwhack and found an elk skull on the way!  Can you spot the white tailed deer?
