I awoke early one morning and was inspired by the wonderful light coming from behind some clouds. I took a walk with my camera and and found beauty and wonder all around me.
"Howard Prairie Lake is a reservoir located 4,526 feet (1,380 m) above sea level in Jackson County, Oregon, United States. It is 18 miles (29 km) east of Ashland. The lake is formed by the 100-foot (30 m) tall Howard Prairie Dam, which impounds Beaver Creek, in the Klamath River watershed.
The reservoir was created in 1958 when the 100-foot (30 m) tall earthfill dam was completed by the Talent Division of the Rogue River Basin Project. A canal diverting water from nearby Little Butte Creek, (in the Rogue River watershed), to the lake was also completed.
