Crown Point Street Lamp

Nothing too spectacular about the sky in this pic -- except for its BLUE!!! We have not seen blue sky or the sun in what seems like a month, so yesterday, when it was sunny and warm, we all kinda freaked out! This is a photo of the light fixture at Crown Point in the Columbia River Gorge. Happy Friday, All ;)

Astoria OR

Sheryl has a wonderful daily blog of Astoria, OR. However, it is one of my FAVORITE places to visit, so I thought I would use its beautiful cityscape as my picture today. This was actually taken from the top of the Astoria Column, looking down on the town. I like that it prominently features one of my favorite parts of Astoria, the 4 mile long Astoria-Megler Bridge. It spans the mouth of the Columbia River from Oregon to Washington.

Mt Hood at dusk

Whenever I get in a blogging slump, I can always find an old pic of Mt Hood to post. I thought this was more than appropriate for Blue Monday. I took this one a few years ago just before Trillium Lake closed for the winter. The snow had just started to collect on the mountain. Taken at dusk, everything was very still and naturally blue. Chilly!!!!
