16.36 acres in Beatty, Oregon covered in tall pine trees with a beautiful rock outcropping and power next door! It's about 1.5 miles from the National Forest - oh she's a pretty one! It's about an hour NE of Klamath Falls and 2.5 hours E of Medford by Sprague River.
All of the photos and video were taken in August 2018. I visited the property twice because she was so fabulous. The first day it was hazy from the fires in California fires but I finally got a peek at the blue sky the next day!
The property sits on Godowa Springs Road about 1 mile NE of the pavement. This road is also called County Road 1193 on the maps where it heads N out of Beatty. I included a photo of where you turn off onto this road. It is a bladed road along the N of the property. There is an old tire and washing machine blocking a road that leads down the W side of it making the W side pretty easy to locate. There is an old fence line that runs along the E side of it.
I hiked around a few different parts of the property getting a feel for it. Wow was this ever a sweet surprise to find the big rock outcropping on it and nicely covered in big tall pine trees! I scrambled up to the top of the rock and took a few photos, feeling like I was the queen of the world up there before I looked down and became dizzy! There's a nice drop off on the back side of this rock! I loved that someone had carved their names into it 30 years ago!
There were a couple large animals holes, some large animal poop, a bit of underbrush but lots of pretty open meadows, and a view thru the trees of the green crops in the Sprague River Valley below.
The sound of the pine needles sounded beautiful as I walked about the property. It looks like it was logged years ago as there are a few old piles of decayed timber but plenty of nice tall pine trees covering it! I actually got lost in the woods trying to find my way back to the road twice!
Across the street to the N is a large mountain with a pretty rock outcropping at the top of it. I shot this photo from below on the paved road looking NE towards the property that sits in the lower foothills. You can see that rocky peak of the mountain at the top. I believe the house off to the right of the middle is one of the two neighbors to the SE where there's also power very close to the SE corner of the property.
About 1.5 mile NE is the Fremont-Winema National Forest offering 2.3 million acres to explore! The heavily timbered western portion of the forests is bordered by the crest of the Cascade Mountain Range and Crater Lake National Park, and stretches east into the Klamath River Basin, an area known for its year-round sunshine, wetlands, woodlands and wildlife. It's also home to Crater Lake, famous for its deep blue color and water clarity. In 2012 I was exploring a property in Cooks Canyon on the W side of Cooks Mountain and spotted several prints in the dirt which included bear, cougar and deer! And it seem to be the hunters who buy a lot of our lands.
It sits directly on the Pacific Flyway, a major migratory route for birds extending from Alaska to the tip of South America. Every year, migratory birds travel some or all of this distance both in spring and in fall, finding food, breeding grounds, and overwintering sites. About 80% of those bird make the Klamath Basin a stopover which is over 1 million at times! And wow is it an incredible display of large and small birds, and there is an abundant amount of the large ones! The largest concentration of bald eagles in the lower 48 states winters here and they are a fabulous sight to see as seen in the additional photos area! I love the drive from Klamath Falls to Sprague River/Beatty and it's flock after flock of birds. I included a few photos of the birds I spotted on my way back to Beatty including this bald eagle!
Sprague River, population 514, sits about 35 miles NE of Klamath Falls. It has a store with basic necessities, a restaurant I have seen come and go and there is also a post office. This is a favorite area for many seeking a rural setting in the countryside. In June 2012 we stopped in at the little country store in Sprague River for some supplies and also across the street at the Post Office / Public Library. A special shout out to Joyce, the postal worker who also happens to be the librarian. She educated me about the library...among other things. Like which side the glass window would be on if they were truly closed! : )
I peeked thru the window into the library which was not yet open and she said they were kept very busy and they also offer an interlibrary system that allows people to special order books and tapes from any library in Klamath County. They get delivered right to the library out here. I commented that we had that were we lived in as well and we are big fans of that - a cheap way to read investing and inspirational material for me cause I am cheap! Ha! She said theirs is very busy! I also enjoyed seeing kids jumping from the bridge and playing in the Sprague River and a couple out fishing along the Williamson River and included some of these additional photos at the very bottom.
Klamath County borders northern California and is the fourth largest county in Oregon. Klamath Falls is the county seat as well as the largest nearby town about 45 minutes from Sprague River and Beatty. Here you will find large businesses like Home Depot and Safeway and the courthouse in an old downtown beautiful setting.
I've seen winters where the roads are dry and winters where's there's several feet of snow. I do not explore land here during the winter amd some springs are iffy because unless a neighbor is driving a road to keep the snow down it's blocked. And I've seen it snow here in May and June on a wild weather day! This is the Cascade's!
I enjoy the drive from Klamath Falls out to this area. It follows the Lost River for a few miles and I frequently stop at Stevenson Park which is a little wayside pullout with a couple picnic benches and see what's in the river. One day I saw pelicans...what??? I thought they lived in Florida! Gotta laugh at myself!
In August 2018, the haze from the California wildfires made for a beautiful sunset and as I headed W of Beatty I spotted these two Great Blue Herons, one on top of an old barn and the other on a pole. Soon the one on the barn flew down to join the other for a romantic sunset! I was thrilled to capture it in flight! I see online it's referred to the "old Gallagher barn" - so glad they have left it standing. Some might think it's useless, why leave it? But these two had one heck of a romantic night at that old barn! Ha! : )
She's gorgeous! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )
