dip net platforms…

at Cascade Locks, Oregon. Unoccupied this day. Below is a photo I took at The Dalles near the previously posted ’tilt house’ area. That fellow is enjoying solitude. Such platforms are traditionally the works of Native Americans, who dip a long handled net in hope of scooping a salmon passing through. They harvest the fish, then sell them near the highways, to passerby.

Wishing you…

a safe, gentle beginning to your week, if you are tucked away. Wishing you strength, courage and focus if you are on the riskier side of life and death right now.

The Vista House was constructed atop Crown Point from 1916-1918. It was a bit controversial because of WWI costs and a sense of frugalness. Construction went forward and the spot, because of the view, attracts many people all year long.

Passage of time…

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time…” Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It (Columbia River, Oregon)

a gentle start to the season…

the first, much needed, rains of Fall gently filled this little waterfall near the Columbia River Gorge. The rain is helping put out a raging forest fire east of Portland (Oregon).

solitary…

Warrior Point Lighthouse (built 1889) situated on Sauvie Island along the Columbia River to warn incoming ships of a bedrock reef that juts out from Sauvie Island into the Columbia River. As many as 2000 large cargo ships pass by this small lighthouse into Portland, Oregon each year.
