Sacagawea and Papoose Rock

I did a bit of research and discovered that this snowy peak is named Sacagawea and Papoose Rock. We were on a hike up Tanner Creek in the Columbia River Gorge and came around a corner and this is what we saw ahead of us. While we were on the Oregon side of the gorge,  the clouds above had separated just long enough to expose this snow covered hill on the Washington state side through the trees.

Pebbles of Tanner Creek

A few weeks ago, we attempted a hike up Tanner Creek to check out the waterfalls up there. We did not make it very far because it was not accessible using a stroller. However, we now have a baby backpack, so we headed up the trail again on Christmas Eve. This time we were successful. Up at the end the water was crystal clear, and the stones and pebbles were easily viewed through the creek.

First Ornament

It is Christmas Eve. Today our family will start celebrating. On the tree hangs my sons very first ornament. When I was growing up, my mom always set the table with Spode Christmas dishes. When I found this Spode first Christmas ornament, I knew it was perfect!
