My son and I headed out for early evening fly fishing on the upper Deschutes River near Bend, Oregon. Instead of casting for sassy trout, I angled for a few good pictures for Skywatch Friday. At our favorite fishing spot, the river squeezes its way along the edge of an enormous lava flow from a not too long extinct volcano. The thick jagged texture and size of this phenomenon is a sight to behold. In the above picture one brave pine has managed to find a foothold in this barren world. This tree stands tall and tenacious, poking up defiantly before the multi-colored sky behind it.
