That hike I mentioned? It was a path along the Metolius River. That’s Native American for White Fish.
There were waterfalls
Plenty of hungry rainbow trout
I mentioned the white-water rapids, didn’t I?
And the trout? Look, see ’em! Aren’t they something?
There were some gal-pals, of course
By way of Georgia
There was eye-squinting sunshine all the day long
Oregon trees are no match for strong-hearted southern women
Some ice-cream & snow-capped mountains
To top off the day.
The Wild and Scenic Metolius River flows 28.6 miles from the Metolius Spring in the Deschutes National Forest, forms the forest boundary, and empties into Lake Billy Chinook. The Metolius is one of the largest spring-fed rivers in the country. The upper 11.5 miles, within the Deschutes, is a popular destination for whitewater boating, catch and release flyfishing, and camping. Only hatchery rainbow trout, kokanee salmon, and whitefish may be taken from the river.
Just my way of inviting you along. Hope you enjoyed it.
