This Gallery is the story of the Umpqua River Valley.The Snowy Egret soars through the Umpqua Valley, only minutes from Upper Klamath Lake which she calls home. The Umpqua Indians, for whom this land is named, were FAR from their home in Canada when they migrated to this Indian Paradise 1000 years ago. Since then there has always been a Fisherman on the Umpqua…and not uncommonly, a fisherwoman on the Umpqua.
          Vineyards, Cattle ranches, vegetables and fruit orchards populate this area known as the “Hundred Valleys of the Umpqua”. This geography, hillsides, ponds and river drainages, sends water to the ocean…calm water seen from Tyee Road to crashing waterfalls of the Rogue-Umpqua Byway. There are 3 major waterfalls in the Umpqua National Forest, accessible by the Rogue Umpqua Byway.  They are  the vigorous Clearwater Falls... the tallest (272 feet) Watson Falls...and the prettiest, and graceful Toketee Falls.  Little River and the North Umpqua join near Glide at "Colliding Rivers" with thrashing waves in the winter.
          Winston’s Wildlife Safari  provides an opportunity for animals like the largest Asian antelope to thrive and the plump sleepy eyed lion to rest.  Near Reedsport, the Dean Wildlife Viewing Center caters to a large number of Roosevelt Elk often seen just before nightfall.
          If you are in the mood for the idyllic or the robust…a romp in the woods…or an afternoon of fishing…the extraordinary Umpqua River Valley has it all.
