“Oregon High Desert Trip”

Description from Melody F: I live in the Willamette Valley, where you buy some plants for a hedge and they grow 6 feet in one year, and 6 feet the next year, and and 6 feet the next. Pretty soon they've taken over your whole yard and you have to harvest them for fire wood. But drive east for a while and pretty soon you're in the Oregon High Desert, where trees grow for 50 years and only get to be 10 feet, if that. Some giant cracks in the earth are canyons, and the land around the buttes washed away millions of years ago. I just got back from a trip that took me from Salem to Bend to Burns then south to Andrews, a ghost town where an artist has lived with only a dog for company for 7 years. It was a very special trip, and I have tried to convey some of the desert colors in this pick.
