Every year, my wife’s family heads to the lake house for the 4th of July. They have a house on Ten Mile Lake which is near North Bend, Oregon. It’s a fantastic place with beautiful scenery, a perfect lake for boating, plenty of places for kids to get dirty and wet, and lots of great food. I tried to capture the essence of that weekend in black and white.

A week or so ago, we went on a trip to spend Independence Day with my wife’s family at a lake house in Oregon. In addition to the time spent at Ten Mile Lake (near North Bend, Oregon), we also took the opportunity to visit places like Crater Lake National Park, Haceda Head, Yaquina Bay, Cascade Head, and Salt Creek Falls.
