Corvallis to Redmond

All pictures on this page are owned and copyrighted, 2002, by Markus Dietz. They are used here with his permission.

Markus Dietz was a co-worker from Köln, Germany, who visited Eugene in January of 2002. The weather cleared enough one Sunday for us to take a flight over the Cascades to Redmond. Our route took us over Oak Ridge and Odell Lake on the way to Redmond and direct back to Corvallis. On the way back just north of the Three Sisters, we could see as far north as Mt. Adams in Washington.

It was a little hazy, but not as hazy as the pictures make it look.
