Chasing the Tide

Chasing the Tide

This little boy was so cute playing along the shoreline in Long Beach last weekend.  He was scared of the tide line, but kept approaching and then racing away as each little wave moved up the shore.  I really wish I didn't compose this shot w...

Mouth of the Columbia

Mouth of the Columbia

From the Washington side, and just before we crossed the bridge into Oregon.  Bill was driving when I took this shot.  I wish I'd asked him to stop because it's a little blurry, but at the time I was just playing around.  I liked the old...

Kite Tails

For all my complaining about the foggy conditions at the Long Beach Kite Festival on Saturday, thick fog does make for some interesting photographic opportunities.  Especially when there are bright colors involved.  I'm always amazed by how v...

Marine Layer

What is it about us and kite festivals that causes a marine layer of fog to roll in just as we arrive?  We made a quick trip out to Long Beach, Washington over the weekend to enjoy the kite festival there, but it turned foggy just as we arrived.&n...

Heading Upstream

Here's a slightly broader view of Zigzag River leading up to the falls. It was such a small and gentle river (our dog Clover hopped around in the river along the hike; it's much too shallow for swimming), and yet it moves with enough force to have patc...

Zigzag

Zigzag

Another great hike near Mt. Hood is the Little Zigzag Falls hike.  It's just a half mile to the falls, no elevation change, and the entire walk on a carpet of soft pine needles next to the rushing Zigzag River.  These snags are thick througho...

Mt. Hood at Trillium Lake

Mt. Hood at Trillium Lake

We had a nice getaway weekend, camping near Mt. Hood. This is the mountain most easily visible from where we live, but I didn't realize how close it actually is to us. Definitely an easy day trip, although the camping was fun, and the weather was perfe...

Water Irony

Water Irony

I was so surprised to see this truck full of bottled water during our visit to Logan Pass in Glacier National Park last month.  The irony of providing bottled water in the midst of some of the purest water on the planet was not lost on me.  I...
