Today we decided to check out a place called Antelope Reservoir. When we take our drive to one of the BLM areas we always pass the turn off. So today was as good as any to take a drive there.
On the way we saw a few deer.
Once we turned off the Paulina Highway (380) it was a dirt road. First through approximately three miles of private property, then another 11 miles or so of Forest Service land. It was very pretty. When we finally got to the reservoir I was surprised at all the other people that were there, considering the roughness of the road.
But we claimed one of the two picnic tables there and enjoyed our lunch and the views and the wildlife.

The dam end (and near the picnic tables).
After lunch we took a little walk at the bottom of the dam. The dogs took a dip in the creek.

On the way back home I just had to stop to take pictures of this keeled over tree.
I like the gnarly trees.
And of course there's the lovely wildflowers. These are all yellow.
Tomorrow I go back to work. I'll be working four hours Friday, Saturday, and Sunday doing video training. I hope I remember how to log back into the computer to find the training sessions.
