Winter’s Mists Rise Over High Prairie Near Oakridge

GEORGE GRAGG OF McMINNVILLE made this image on an atmospheric wintry day on High Prairie northeast of Oakridge. It’s safe to say that relatively few Oregonians have ever heard of the heavenly area, let alone know where it is or how to get there. Surrounded by verdant national forest, the prairie sits well above 2,000 feet elevation and often has snow while it rains in Oakridge. When not blanketed in white, High Prairie’s bucolic farm fields are a fine place to find livestock grazing peacefully alongside elk and deer. “My wife and I bought a small piece of property near Oakridge in 1999 and spend a lot of time there,” says Gragg. “We absolutely love the area. A truck mechanic for more than 25 years, Gragg changed lines of work about seven years ago, “and my current job title is behavior intervention coach at an alternative type school.” He also keeps busy as an amateur photographer whose work – much of it in the Upper Willamette area that he loves — can be found on Facebook.

The Herald Welcomes Readers’ Photos

Oakridge and other communities along the Highway 58 corridor are blessed with many talented amateur photographers, and we have provided a place to share their work on this page. There’s no compensation – we’re a nonprofit, remember – but we will always credit the photographer and write a brief caption to go with each digital picture we publish here. We also warmly welcome black-and-white historical photos from our coverage area.

How and What to Submit

We welcome reader photos of news, nature or nothing much of anything as long as it involves life on the Upper Willamette and is fit for publication on a family news site. Email your picture as a .jpg file to [email protected] along with a brief description of what you photographed, when and where you did it, and perhaps even how you did it if there’s a bit of a story there. Also include your name, address and phone number for verification, and please tell us a little about yourself. Only your name will be published, in a credit line with your photo.
