Mt. Hood Over Willamette Falls

Mt Hood over Willamette Falls

Willamette Falls is the Pacific Northwests largest natural waterfall by volume. It is located between Oregon City and West Linn. On a clear day, you can easily spot Mt. Hood looming over the waterfall from a viewpoint off I-205. I had actually never taken the time to stop, but could not help myself when Sunday's weather was so beautiful!

First Flower

Winter Crocus


Every year, I see the first flower of the year in my moms garden. Oh, but not this year! This year it was in my own yard!!! A bright yellow crocus popped up in my front yard and was in full bloom when I noticed it during an afternoon sunbreak. Oh, I cannot WAIT for spring!!! I know it is still a pretty long way off. It is not even February yet, and things can be pretty bad around here during my birthday month. But the anticipation...

Douglas Hollow School House

Douglas Hollow School House, Dufur Oregon

I have been unable to find any information online about the old abandoned Douglas Hollow School. It is located outside of Dufur, Oregon off a little dirt road that cut through the middle of an expanse of fields. I hiked to the top of one of the hills behind the dilapidated building and could see a full 360 view around me. A gorgeous location for the lonely little structure.

Clear Day View of Mt Hood

Mt. Hood from Milo McIver State Park, Estacada Oregon

While much of the country has been battered by intense winter storms, we in the Pacific Northwest were enjoying mild, sunny, almost spring like days. I took my son out to enjoy the sun yesterday afternoon and we hunted out a location that had a pretty view of Mt. Hood, since it seems like it has been quite a while since we have been able to see the peak. She shone in all her glory with a beautiful fresh coat of white snow. I am glad we got out to enjoy the sun a few times while it lasted, because the forecast says that the wet wintery weather returns to us starting today.

Vernonia Lake

Vernonia Lake, Vernonia Oregon

The rain has been dumping down for what seems like forever. December set rainfall records, and while we did get a little break in the downpour at the beginning of January, this past weekend the Portland metro area received another 2 inches. This is great for the snowpack in the mountains and for our overall water needs, which suffered so much this past summer. But it is not exactly fun when it comes to wanting to venture outside. Growing restless, we bundled up in our rainboots and jackets and went on a drive west to the small town of Vernonia. When we arrived, the rains actually subsided long enough for us to take a nice walk around Vernonia Lake. This photo was taken from the west side of the glassy lake looking east towards the old abandoned Oregon-American Lumber Company mill fuel bunker, which I posted about earlier this week. The pond used to serve as a place where the railroad cars would dump logs and they would be stored there until their turn to be processed at the mill.
