Diamond Lake, Oregon

 McBrooklyn is still on the road. We've reached beautiful Diamond Lake, in the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon. (That's Mount Thielsen rising in the distance.) The water is crystal clear, cold and is literally jumping with huge rainbow trout (two feet long is not unusual). The trout and whole tribes of bats are going after swarms of bugs called midges that have started hatching along the shoreline. Meanwhile, bald eagles swoop down to grab the trout.

More from the next Internet outpost.
