I spent a week camping along the Metolius River in Central Oregon. The Metolius is spring fed so it was running normally but the other lakes and rivers in the area are very low. The mountains had very little to no snow on them. I’ve never seen some of these mountains without snow. It’s difficult for me to understand why we’re still talking about whether climate change is happening even as we’re experiencing the damage.
Having said that, the Metolius offered the illusion of a healthy environment, for now, at least. Here are a few sketches I did from the camp site. Click on the images for a larger view.
