Where the horizon meets the great outdoors
Klamath Basin NWR Complex, Klamath County

The Rufous Hummingbird (Selasphorus rufus) is a small, about 8 cm long (3 inches) with a long, straight and very slender bill. The female is slightly larger than the male. These birds must eat frequently during the day. Photo by Dave Menke/USFWS
Highway 96, Siskiyou CountyThe dream of a new State formed in Northern California and Southern Oregon is still alive. The thought of being free of big city politics and creating a state based on rural values is wildly popular. Photo by Anders Tomlinson
Upper Klamath River, Siskiyou CountyThere are more than 40 rapids to Class IV+ facing the rafter between Spring Island and Copco Lake. The names alone tell the story: Caldera, Satan's Gate, Hell's Corner, Ambush and The Bermuda Triangle. Photo by Anders Tomlinson
Lower Klamath NWR, Siskiyou CountyButterflies undergo the most dramatic changes in the animal world from egg to caterpillar to cocoon encased pupa to an adult with beautifully painted wings that unfold like a pleated curtain. Photo by Dave Menke/USFWS
Lava Beds National Monument, Siskiyou CountyWhether you choose a short hike or overnight camping experience, Lava Beds provides an opportunity to escape the sights and sounds of everyday life and encounter untamed wildlife in rugged landscapes. Photo by Anders Tomlinson
Upper Klamath Lake, Klamath County
Clark's Grebe's are easily mistaken for Western Grebes. Birders tell them apart by looking at the eyes. The Clark's eyes are within the white head feathers while those of the Western are in the black. Photo by Dave Menke/USFWS
Upper Klamath River, Siskiyou County
This photo was taken just below Iron Gate Reservoir in November when the leaves were turning to gold. If a drift boat came along, its skipper would likely row past as a courtesy to the fly anglers. Photo by Scott Caldwell
McCloud Reservoir, Siskiyou County
Many lakes in the State of Jefferson are stocked regularly with trout. Trolling a spinner, spoon or piece of worm slowly on McCloud Reservoir often results in many hook-ups and easy limits. Photo by Scott Caldwell
Tule Lake NWR, Siskiyou CountyAntlers grow fast taking only three to four months to reach full size. Once the blood vessels stop nourishing the horns, the velvety skin and hair fall away leaving only the hardened antler. Photo by Anders Tomlinson
Klamath Basin NWR Complex
The Calliope is the smallest hummer in North America north of Mexico. It inhabits mountain areas of the northwestern United States. The purple-red rays on the throat mark this traveler as a male. Photo by Dave Menke/USFWS
