Cloudy Skies, Rainy Days

The cloudy weather has taken over this neck of the woods. Don't blink, or you will miss the bits of blue in the distance!

Happy Halloween to everyone!

Sahalie Falls

About a half a mile east of the Mt Hood Meadows Ski Area, back in the woods off Hwy 35 is Sahalie Falls. The best view of the falls can be seen from a bridge much like this one, which is the remains of the old mountain highway. Two weekends ago when I took this photo, the leaves were just beginning to change. Now, I would bet, there is a bit of snow on the ground at this location.

Better Hurry!

These bees better hurry and finish collecting for the autumn. The weather has turned from mild, like it was when I took this photo a few days ago, to rain, wind, and up the mountain, snow.

On Friday I posted what I thought was going to be my last photo of Mt Hood before it snowed up there. I was right! The snow started accumulating over the weekend and has already reached a foot and a half at Timberline Ski Area. Down where I live, the wind and rain were fairly intense, and I am sure these bees were not out much in that weather!
