Located roughly a 1/2 hour drive west of Bend, Oregon is the historic McKenzie Pass (Hwy 242). Closed in winter, this narrow road traverses some of Oregon's most beautiful wilderness areas and has stunning views of many of the Oregon Cascade mountains. This photo was taken at a short hike off the highway and is of Lower Proxy Falls. While there, I saw many people photograph the falls, including a couple who obviously had just gotten engaged and were having their engagement photos taken.
This photo of Proxy Falls is my entry to Dick Greenbergs' Real Life Places category.
