Shevlin Park: Forest views, February

Whenever someone asks us for locations with trees, I laugh a little inside as we have millions of trees, of varying kinds (ponderosas, junipers, aspens and lodgepole pine).  Ponderosas are gorgeous and create really stunning locations due to the striations in their bark.  These images were taken between 2-4pm in mid-February, in Shevlin Park.  There is a road that can be utilized by film crew towards the southern side of the park with a Forest service restroom, and a large parking area.  Permits are required through Bend Park and Rec, at least 30 days in advance.
