If a tree falls in the woods...

I am sure someone heard this one! The wind has been really blowing the past 3 or 4 days. All over town there are broken branches, debris, and fallen trees. We have been lucky and only lost power once, and it was in the middle of the night so it didnt matter much. This tree snapped like a toothpick due to the strong gusts.


  1. Glad it was out in the woods and not in the middle of town!

  2. Wow, that must have been some heavy gusts to snap that tree like that. Great Picture.

  3. Great blog! Wonderful photo's. This picture of the tree reminded me of an evening camping off of highway 26 in the center of Oregon, when a tree snapped just like this one did, only 50 feet away from us. I will attest to the fact that it made a noise! Thanks for visiting my blog on this historic day.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
