  4. Lost Lake, Oregon—July 7, 2013— The sunrise view of Mt. Hood from the parking lot view point. Lost Lake in the Mount Hood National Forest is probably best known for its drive up view of Mt. Hood. The lake is about 10 miles northwest of the mountain near the crest of the Cascade Mountain Range. The view might be one of the most photographed places in Oregon and has been reproduced in post cards, calendars, posters, books and other material. In 2010 the U.S. Mint issued a ceremonial Mount Hood National Forest quarter with Lost Lake in the foreground.  Photo by Jamie Francis/The Oregonian

  5. ST. PAUL, OR — July 2, 2013 — Ward Macza of High River, Alberta Canada, watches bucking horses in a pen before a procession down Main Street, St. Paul scheduled for 6:36 AM. The horses were driven to the arena to kick off the town’s 78th annual Fourth of July rodeo. The procession through town, which hasn’t taken place in over sixty years, is a tribute to the early days of the rodeo when farmers and ranchers would drive their horses from their land to the event. The St. Paul Rodeo, the 15th largest in the country and the largest on the 4th of July, runs from July 2nd through July 6th in downtown St. Paul. Allison Milligan/The Oregonian
