After posting photos of the street festival (parts one and two, and the bed races) from the Santiam SummerFest, held on Saturday in downtown Stayton, we are wrapping things up with the big car show held at Pioneer Park. This will be a two-parter, because why not. There are a …

More Santiam SummerFest photos today (see also: street festival part 1 and part 2)! It’s time for the bed races, wherein people raced beds, put on their pajamas, and then raced some more. I even shot some video, so that’s extra exciting, if you like watching somewhat smudged video (not …

Here’s the second half of the photos from the street festival portion of the Santiam SummerFest, held on Saturday (see also: part 1. As you can see above, Stayton’s Mayor Scott Vigil did his best to dunk Police Chief Rich Sebens (left, in tank) and another officer, but he failed. …

Yesterday was the annual Santiam SummerFest, held in downtown Stayton, and holy fudge pops I am tired. So I’ve decided to spread things out and will post things in parts, a bit more spaced out than I usually do. I think I might be coming down with something or other, …

I took this photo of construction at the elementary school about two weeks ago, but forgot to post it. I bet it looks pretty similar to this now, so let’s pretend I took it yesterday. Don’t forget to go to the Santiam SummerFest today! If you see me (short, round, …

Patriotic horse is patriotic. Or it’s just a coincidence it’s standing next to an American flag. Or is it? Yes, it is. Or not. This photo was taken along Sublimity Rd. SE, just outside of nearby Sublimity. In other news… Tomorrow is the Santiam SummerFest (info here), held in downtown …

This here photo thing is a four-photo panorama of the sunset from a couple of nights ago. It was shot on 3rd Ave., right where it crosses Fern Ridge Rd., looking west, because that’s where sunsets happen. I confess I’m not overly good at doing panorama shots, so the perspective …

Guest photographer Terri Jo Adams spotted a big, beautiful rainbow just south of Stayton a couple of nights ago. She had trouble capturing it all in one shot, so she took a handful to try to display it properly. Looks good to me. Thanks, Terri!

I had never noticed this before a handful of nights ago, but now that I have it has me wondering — why are there two fire hydrants a few feet apart from each other on the corner of 3rd Ave. and Fern Ridge Rd.? They sit on the corner of …

I discovered this gorgeous elusive creature roaming a field across the street from Dairy Queen on Cascade Highway. As you can see, it is the quite rare unicorn cow. Some may call it a unicow, but that is incorrect — while there is one (uni) cow, in this case, we …

Last night was the final night of the rodeo in nearby Sublimity (see also: opening night and day 2. They had a nice tribute to veterans at the start, and then a bunch of rodeo-oriented things, so here are more photos. I didn’t stay as late as the previous night, …

I attended the second night of the Stampede (see also: opening night, where a lot of horse-oriented things happened. People in cowboy hats rode horses, fell off of horses (or, like in the photo above, they flew), sat on horses, roped other animals while on horses (the people, not the …

Last night was the kickoff of the 2014 Santiam Canyon Stampede in nearby Sublimity. I attended the opening night festivities and took a few photos of the atendees, the silent auction tables, and random other things that struck my fancy. Click on the images below to see them larger. Big …

Guest photographer Maryann Nielson caught this little guy or gal on a flower at Deepwood Estate in nearby Salem. I’m not sure if it’s a bee or a bee mimic, but either way, it’s a cutie. Thanks, Maryann!

Here’s another photo from my little drive around the outskirts of nearby Sublimity. I posted a photo of an irrigation wheel line a few days ago, and today’s photo shows another form of field watering. I believe the technical term is “big ol’ sprinkler.” I’m pretty sure I took this …
