I was lucky enough to spend the first 12 years of my life in Redmond, Oregon. Most of those years were spent out of town in the country. It was a trek to our nearest neighbors and my sister and I would take turns turning the antenna so we could watch the one TV channel we received. We had the freedom to roam the land until dusk. It’s a freedom children don’t get today, especially in the city.
I spent this last weekend in Redmond and couldn’t resist going for some of the same walks I did as a child. The high desert is such a beautiful place. The Juniper trees and sagebrush instantly bring me back to my childhood. I love the twisted form of the Juniper tree.
I took these pictures of my beloved Juniper trees. I would love to do a photo study on the juniper tree. This trip was a good start.
