Frozen in time…

Columbia River Gorge, or as locals call it the Gorge. A small waterfall along the ‘Scenic Hiway’ (the old road up the Gorge before the I-84 freeway was constructed)

Momentarily frozen…

one of many small, unnamed waterfalls tumbling (frozen this day) over the cliffs of the Gorge into ponds, lakes and wetlands that all empty into the Columbia River, on the Oregon side.

Below is an 1880 photo taken by……………. of the same general spot, but from a slightly different angle. The photo is courtesy of the Wyeast Blog, which is a good source of Columbia River Gorge information.

“Palisades, Columbia River” This 1880s scene captured by Frank J. Haynes, official photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad. Crown Point (then called “Thor’s Heights”) and its lacy waterfall are the backdrop for what was known as Echo Bay in the early days of settlement.

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.

This is it….

“Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.”     Mary Ann Radmacher

This is it…your one life. At least once, walk to the edge and glimpse the possibilities…not just the dangers. Constant risk assessment becomes stifling, paralyzing.
