Wooly Bear Caterpiller

The wooly bear caterpillar has always been a fun winter weather predictor. The longer the middle orange section, the longer the winter. This fuzzy guy is definitely indicating a long winter for our area.

Cabin Creek Falls

We went on a hike this past weekend from Starvation Creek up the side of the Columbia River Gorge. This was the first of three waterfalls we saw during our day. There is a huge fallen basalt boulder in front of it, which when you stand between the boulder and the falling water, creates a sort of amphitheater effect.

Killer Spider

Seriously creepy. The size of the spiders in autumn is pretty incredible. This one was minding his own business in the center of his web. His bold markings and colors was a photo opportunity waiting to happen. I snapped away. When I went to leave, I noticed another spider of the same variety nearby, only larger, and killing some sort of large beetle. It was super gross. I high tailed it out of there ;)

At the very beginning of a hike we took yesterday, there was these autumn leaves tangled in the dry grasses on the edge of the path. It was striking because it was all of similar tones. Very "fall".
