Amidst a cacophony of songbirds, insects and lily pads; a beautiful sunset unfolds on Central Oregon’s Hosmer lake. Formally known as Mud Lake, Hosmer is undergoing the process of succession as it fills in with volcanic silt to slowly become a swamp, and eventually an alpine meadow. Currently Hosmer is popular for both paddle sports and fly fishing. Due to the explosive popularity of this fragile lake, tread lightly and give others space. Deschutes National Forest, Central Oregon Cascades.
