Moonlit Fog on Trillium Lake

Moonlit Fog on Trillium Lake, Oregon

On Tuesday last week, my family was enjoy the first night of a quiet camping trip at Trillium Lake. The lake is usually way too packed with throngs of tourists and other campers for our taste, but after kids go back to school, a mid-week camping trip is much more enjoyable. We were one of only a handful of campers. There were almost no boats on the water, and even the normally crowded dam had not even one person fishing from its banks. 

That night around midnight the moon rose up over the lake and lit up the fog that hovered over the waters. It was one of the prettiest things I have even been lucky enough to sit and enjoy. The definition of peaceful.

Beaver Falls

Beaver Falls; Clatskanie, Oregon

I posted about visiting Upper Beaver Falls last week. This is Beaver Falls, a larger drop that is about 2 miles downriver. We accessed this waterfall from the top, which had a short, yet kind of challenging walk in. We had to navigate across the creek at the top of the falls, and then scramble down a steep canyon edge to get to the bottom. A feat made a bit more difficult by my having to carry my 3 year old. But it was worth it. The falls were gorgeous. The amphitheater of cut rock columns was amazing. The pool of water than the waterfall drops into is deep and clear. There were three other small groups of people enjoying their Sunday afternoon when we visited, and one of the people told us that it gets pretty crowded through the summer. I can see why!

Likeness In The Waters of Trillium Lake

Reflection of Mt Hood on Trillium Lake, Oregon

Many, many photos of the reflection of Mt. Hood on the mirror-like waters of Trillium Lake have been taken. It is hard to get a unique perspective. I used the framing of nearby evergreen trees to bring a little something different to the otherwise rather drab, white-skied day that we woke up to on Thursday morning after a few days of camping.

Shellrock Lake

Shellrock Lake, Roaring River Wilderness, Oregon

I mentioned that we took the road less traveled in a post last week. This is one of two destinations that we hiked to during that trip. This is Shellrock Lake in the Roaring River Wilderness area. The small, secluded alpine destination was deserted when we visited with the exception of just one couple who were camping along its banks. I was jealous of them as we started on our hike out. They were going to be lucky enough to enjoy this entire place all to themselves once we were gone!

Upper Beaver Falls

Upper Beaver Falls; Clatskanie, Oregon

Happy first day of autumn to all my readers in the northern hemisphere!

We took a lengthy car drive on Sunday to a pair of waterfalls that I had not ever visited before. This is Upper Beaver Falls outside of Clatskanie, Oregon. This little waterfall is much smaller than its big brother downstream, but lovely just the same. I loved the whirlpool effect that the slow shutter created with the bubbles and leaves in the water!
