out in the Middle

   Whether you are a local or a visitor touring this unique region, there is so such to see in the middle of Oregon! Even the making of a scenic photo book on the subject requires omitting a lot of beautiful material of gorgeous scenery that abounds in the central sector of the "Beaver State." There is sensational scenic beauty all over our state, but there is a tremendous amount squeezed into this area. 

   For that reason, Central Oregon is a major tourist destination. Travelers flock here in all seasons and they are greeted by bountiful forests, snow-capped mountains, rippling streams, yawning canyons, lovely lakes, "Big Sky" range country, stunning rock formations and more!
   These benefits are equally enjoyed by locals who call this territory home. This book is aimed at residents too, for it contains a varied sampling of what there is to see and appreciate in Central Oregon. The photos in this volume display a wide variety of scenes that will appeal to locals and tourists alike.

As a nature lover and avid photographer, Mr. Hills has spent years roaming the high desert and has done much field work in the study of the desert ecosystem. He has focused particularly on the area's prolific juniper trees and how they are an integral part of the desert setting in which they thrive.
​   The author points out that the juniper are not the usurpers of the desert many disparage them to be and presents his case for respecting the juniper. It is the expressed purpose of this book to encourage both the preservation of and the exercise of responsible conservation in regard to these trees. Juniper trees, whether typical, utilitarian specimens or unique, weird, extraordinary ones are represented in these pages as they should be...important to the local ecosystem as well as delights for nature lovers.
