R and I got to see a lot of cool things on our recent vacation. I'll keep posting here as I go through the 2,500+ photos & 50+ videos I took on the trip.

To start off, this was possibly the coolest thing we saw - an Osprey & Bald Eagle fighting in flight. First, a couple pictures (screenshots from video) then the video itself, slowed down to half-speed to more easily see the action. In both of these photos, the Osprey is above the eagle. Notice that the eagle goes upside down each time the Osprey approaches it.

And I think this was our favorite campsite on the trip. Mt. Shasta in the background and Lake Shastina behind me from where I took this photo. Best part? It was a freeeeee! campsite!

I was driving... That seriously distracts me from photo-taking.

The only sign of drought I noticed in Oregon is that Multnomah Falls isn't flowing as much as I remember it almost 15 years ago:

Should move the forest closed sign again? They just move it back. Haha.
I have a plethora of giant (3-6 footers) granite boulders I could tractor down, if I had an opening dimension and permission. Hehe, too much work.. and none of my business anyway.

Rocks for sale?
"Based on national research, the average costs for landscape boulders are: Average Minimum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $100 per ton. Average Maximum Cost of Landscaping Boulders: $600 per ton."
