Detroit Lake is a reservoir just south of Salem and 100 miles from Portland. I've been there in the summer when the lake is filled with boisterous campers and swimmers. Right now it is being drawn down so the water level is very low. After Detroit Lake we headed towards Silver Falls State Park where you can hike a few miles around several waterfalls. We only ran into one other person during the hike who tried to school us on cameras. We remained calm.

It's eerie, really. Every where you turn is remnants of an old forest. Acting like an invasive species, moss has covered hundreds of years of life and decades of death. Fog sits idly along the shoreline and mountains.
Deforestation at its prettiest.
