The Pacific Northwest showed her true colors during my most recent visit, with nearly constant rain, wind, and fog. Shooting in this much rain (as well as spray from the massive falls) was definitely a challenge, as keeping the lens dry was nearly impossible! Definitely one of my favorite spots in WA so far...the photos just don't even begin to do it justice.

Such a crazy day of hiking, shooting, and overall amazement on the Lake 22 Trail. By the time we reached this waterfall, it we had heard several long rumbles of thunder. Unaccustomed to the weather in WA, I foolishly asked *blyndspy if it was an avalanche. But the sky darkened, the clouds thickened, and it began to rain harder.
Little did we know, the weather would soon switch from the moderate rain you see in this photo to snow pellets and then finally to snow. We couldn't believe how quickly the snow accumulated in just a few short minutes!
a fall that has been on my list for quite some time was finally crossed off as traveled to a couple weekends ago. the view from the final approach to the amazing Falls Creek Falls near Carson, WA in the Gifford-Pinchot National Forest.
Finally back in action after a fantastic trip to the Pacific Northwest!
A surprise two day trip to the Columbia River Gorge did not disappoint. After spending one day on the Washington side, we spent the second day exploring the Oregon side. While the incredible beauty of Multnomah Falls was captivating, the creek feeding it was just as lovely, in my opinion. This section of Multnomah Creek is above the main falls, so peaceful and idyllic, one would hardly guess that a 620 foot drop awaits just around the bend! I fell in love with this little stone bridge, and excitedly tried to make some kind of shot work here.
It was a beautiful day for a hike up Multnomah Creek, around to Lemmons Viewpoint, and down by Fairy Falls, just to name a few of the highlights!
Special thanks to Addam for being a kind and patient guide and for sharing all this beauty with me. :]
