The last of Winter…

on the West end of the Columbia River Gorge at Multnomah Falls. I see the Daphne budding out by the front porch. A little more warmth, a little Spring like fragrance hitting the nose would be nice.

Brrrr….

Winter seems to be holding on here in Portland (Oregon). Not harsh by other standards by far, but still for here it is a bit colder than usual. Another bout possible tonight or will we dodge it?

Multnomah Falls (Columbia River Gorge)

Always a beautiful waterfall, Multnomah Falls was especially visual yesterday with the snow and ice. As I left it started to snow. Now, some twenty miles away to the west, Portland, Oregon is getting a strong dose of rare snow too.

what do you find to do when….

you’re hunkered down inside during a Winter’s night? Reading a book, perusing the ‘net, watching bad TV, creating in the kitchen, crafting, napping, working in the shop, going on FB for the umpteenth time, listening to music, staying in touch with loved ones……?

Mt. Hood (Oregon)

looking East from the top of Rocky Butte…new snow in the foothills of the Cascades (a North-South range of mountains that contains Mt. Hood).

Soothing in the heat..

It’s only 80 today in Portland, Or….but much hotter elsewhere it appears. So, a suggestive image from 1973 in Eastern Oregon in the Ochoco Mountains…the temps were sub zero those few days…the coldest I have ever been exposed to. Quiet, still, so cold. I clicked a few shots with my old Pentax camera. The first one shows the snow covered Ochoco’s. Hope it gives a moments relief to the heat.

And, the second shot was along the John Day River just up from Dayville, Oregon
