Willow Creek

Description:

Willow Creek Lake is a flood control dam designed to protect the city of Heppner, Oregon. The dam also provides valuable water storage for irrigation for the area. When a flash flood occurs, the flood waters will be caught and stored, and slowly released until the lake returns to its maintained elevation of 2063 feet.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
