Your Gateway to the Lake!
I love to take photos, have since I got my first 35MM camera, a Canon AE-1 way back in the 70s. Most of the time, I like to take rather odd photos, and especially love old barns, landscape shots, sunsets…you get the idea. Here is a smattering of photos I’ve taken since we’ve owned property at Fishhawk Lake, starting about 2002 (unless otherwise noted). Whether it’s spring, summer, winter or fall, it’s a lovely drive from Portland to Fishhawk Lake.

Just outside of town, Farmwoman’s Nursery:
We head along the Nehalem River for several miles until we come upon this barn at sunset:
As you drive along Hwy. 47, it veers off through the little town of Mist and onto Clatskanie:
Historical home built in 1870 in Mist, OR. currently for sale: $325,000
We meet up with many misty areas along the Highway from 47 to Hwy. 202
A Barn and pastures at the entrance of Fishhawk Rd.
Then, we head down Fishhawk Rd. past another beautiful farm, the Berg homestead in the flush of autumn:
A big red barn in the mist along Fishhawk Rd. (no longer there after the winter storms of ’08):
Down the road apiece, horses graze under ominous skies:
Another fall view as you enter Fishhawk Lake:
At the other end of the lake is one of the oldest houses built:
Welcome to the Lake!!
