Benson Bridge


Today's photo is a tribute to Benson Bridge, which spans in between the upper and lower tiers of Multnomah Falls. Two nights ago, a rock presumably fell and hit the north side of the bridge, right about where the people are standing in this photo, knocking a huge chunk out of it. I hope to get up to check out the damage at some point soon, perhaps even this weekend if I am lucky. But until then, here is a photo I took this time last year, and I hope they are able to repair it quickly and back to this original glory.

January Mt Hood from Jonsrud Viewpoint


Jonsrud Viewpoint in Sandy, Oregon offers arguably one of the most gorgeous views of Mt Hood. I arrived just as the sun setting reflected its pink hues off the snow cover, which is actually rather minimal for this time of year.

Sandy River Under Fog


After a spurt of fairly nice weather, the rain has returned. This is the Sandy River, taken from Dodge Park bridge, under a thick layer of fog. The foothills surrounding the Sandy River valley can barely be seen peeking up over the cloud cover.

Zooming Along



This is the waters of the Salmon River. The water is so clear that you can see the many colors of the rock underneath the rapids.

Luminous Winter Mushroom


I took a nice walk along the Salmon River yesterday, and I did not expect to see any mushrooms because it has been way too cold. But this little guy surprised me, and deserved his photo taken.

On another note, thanks to everyone that stopped by last week and checked out my "Best of 2013" post. I received a few requests for a calendar featuring the chosen photos, so I posted one for purchase on Etsy! If you purchase the calendar before midnight on Tuesday January 7th, enter the coupon code SHIP2014 at checkout and receive free shipping! The calendar can be found here.
