Festive Fotos of Fishhawk Lake

Festive Fotos of Fishhawk Lake!


I thought it would be fun and festive to show pictures of winters past at Fishhawk Lake. Here are some from the archives.


Winter at Fishhawk Lake

This one was taken by the spillway and the Fish Ladder, where the salmon spawn yearly.

There was snow on my lens that made it look like a moon. This is from the same vantage point, but a different day. I didn't change the tone of the photo, it came out this way because of the light....or lack thereof!

Fishhawk Lake Water Feature

This one was in front of my old house one winter's night. Our water feature looks natural, but was put in by a wonderful landscaper (using indigenous rock) by Nature's Construction.

Grandpa Wonder's Watering Can on Fishhawk Lake

"Grandpa Wonder's Watering Can" is what I call this. He was a longtime resident of Fishhawk Lake and I sold his cabin a few years ago. 

There are also creatures at Fishhawk Lake and the surrounding area. Some are real, some are "created".


My sweet departed boy, Josh, enjoying a moment with a Snow Buddy!

Elk Reserve Jewell Oregon

 This was taken at the Elk Reserve in Jewell Oregon, about 17 miles past Fishhawk Lake on Highway 202. They come every year. What a magnificent animal!



I’ll bet you didn’t know we have bear that fish here, didcha?


 Bear Fishing at Fishhawk Lake

The winter of ’08 was the toughest we’ve seen in many years in this part of the country. But, you get on an ATV (all terrain vehicle), loaded with your camera and you can get photos like this!


Log Cabin Winter of 2008

(Great way to get around and sightsee in bad weather).



Winters certainly don't keep me from selling property at Fishhawk Lake either!

Gayle-Gorgeous photos. I remember VERY well all the snow in the north. I used to ride snowmobiles and four wheelers. That was great fun.

Gayle - all your photos are stunning as usual, but the first one should be a Christmas card. I'm telling you - you should send it to Hallmark and cash in on some big bucks! You've got us all wishing we were spending the holidays at Fishhawk Lake! I'm looking forward to catching up - I've been so busy! I'm working 2 redesign jobs, a few Realtor consults and have 3 staged homes! Now I just have to log on to AR a little more and catch up on all my friends! Miss ya GF and hope to talk with you soon!

Mel~I'm having a terrific weekend. Just got done working out with my hubby and I'm catching up on some AR blogs. You are "something beautiful"...(just to plug your recent blog!)

Sharon~ahhhh. snowmobiles in the cornfields behind my house in Boston, NY--I remember WELL!  SO MUCH FUN. I was a little kid, and Dad used to let me sit in front and make me feel like I was driving.

Robert~A far cry from Anguilla, which would certainly be MY go come place in February in Oregon....one can only dream.

Cheryl~love your enthusiasm!

Rose~I thought about doing summer photos, but hey, winter is just as nice at Fishhawk.

KG~Miss you TOO and congrats on your well-deserved successes (as well as your latest featured blogpost--one I hope to re-blog later).

Todd!~You made me laugh!  Just bring that fishin' pole.

William, I thought of you, specifically while working on my elk photo...similar to what you did with your prehistoric "tiger" photo that you took.

I love these photos too - and agree the first is my absolute favorite - although "rubbing noses" is pretty cute. Hope you're having fun and enjoying all the magic of the season. We put up our tree yesterday and the house smells so fresh and "green."  :)

Hi Gayle,

You certainly out-did yourself on this post. All the pictures are wonderful. Congrats on the Sold sign too. But I think I love the dog picture the most. So cute!!!!

Happy Holidays.

Hello Gayle,  I'm struck by all of the photos but the one that really grabs my interest is your new profile shot!  When I was scrolling through my subscriptions I kept looking for your photo and thought "hmmmm...another odd AR thing" because I didn't see you.  Now that I've found the photo, I'm going on faith that the beautiful smile is hidden there somewhere!  I'm so confused ;-D

I really like the picture of the rock feature with the flamey looking water cascading over the rocks...and of course you know I'm a sucker for the Josh picture.
