Mt. Hood/The Gorge  - 
 
Colder Still

I had a pretty long chunk of time off during the holiday season and though I was in perpetual new puppy mode for most of it, I did manage to get out into the elements with my boys and one of their friends for a cold afternoon hike to a new waterfall I hadn't been to before.

Dry Creek Falls is located a little over 2 miles from Cascade Locks on the Pacific Crest Trail. The trail winds through beautiful forest, around giant boulders and under a power line clearing. Contrary to the guidance given by many of the online resources, the trail is pretty straightforward.

I never did find a straight answer to the one question all 3 boys kept asking- "Why do they call it Dry Creek when there's always water in it?"

I don't know guys. Just enjoy it.

One more shameless plug asking you to share and/or stop by and vote if you don't mind. Thanks!

Sunset Crashers - This was taken at Shore Acres Park near Coos Bay Oregon. Big Swells hit fairly often here throughout the winter. We arrived just in time for this amazing light.

Sunset Crashers

We visited Shore Acres, near Coos Bay this evening to look at the Christmas light display, but arrived early enough to take in the sunset over the big waves first.  I like the many tiny little lights, but this is so much better.

Fairy Falls

Yesterday the kids and I went on the wettest hike that I can remember. We visited a new waterfall called Fairy falls, which is a mile and a half above Wahkeena falls in the Columbia River Gorge. It's close to Multnomah falls and can actually be hiked as a loop when the trail isn't being repaired like it is at the moment.

I've seen quite a few photos of this particular location, but usually, they are from a time when the volume is much lower making the flow more delicate and letting more of the dark rock visible. I fully intend to revisit in the spring and hopefully do the whole loop. There a couple more sights on that loop that I haven't seen yet.

South Falls at Last Light

I had a chance to arrive at Silver Falls just as the sun dipped behind the trees and the last of the fall leaves are about to drop. I've taken photos of this particular falls from many different vantage points, but it never ceases to amaze me.

Just realized I haven't posted anything here in almost a month.  And, that I'm currently working on a new 365 daily project.  So, here's the first round...and there are a few other photos thrown in too.

Happy Holidays from the Hawks

Mixing two of my favorite things in this one; the Landscape style family Portrait. This is the image that's on our Christmas card this year. It was taken just a few minutes before Sunset Crashers. Per Emily's orders, I had to hang on to this one just like I do every official family portrait until after the cards are mailed.

Locked 

This one was taken a couple weeks back, but I keep seeing it while going through images and really like it. There are abandoned locks like this all over Portland.
