View of Mt Hood from Sauvie Island

Mt Hood from Sauvie Island, Portland, Oregon

This crazy nice weather has us Oregonians out and about! It feels like spring, but it is still only January. Mt Hood revealed itself in all its fresh snowy glory. I shot this from the farmlands on Sauvie Island.

Crossing Over to Sauvie Island

Multnomah Channel, Sauvie Island Bridge

Sauvie Island is a large, 26,000 island in the Columbia River, just a short 10 minute drive from Portland. Once you cross the bridge, it seems like you enter an entirely different world. The island is home to many expansive farms and a huge wildlife refuge. This photo of the bridge crossing the Multnomah Channel nicely depicts the feeling of the island -- quiet and secluded

Butte Creek Falls

Lower Butte Creek Falls

Last week I posted about a short hike I took to see two gorgeous waterfalls on Butte Creek. This is Butte Creek Falls (AKA Lower Butte Creek Falls). To access this view we went just beyond the end of the maintained trail to a rocky cliffs edge that towered over the creek hundreds of feet below. I set up my tripod on this precarious ledge and shot the twisting waters of the waterfall crashing down through the foggy forest.

Suspended Raindrops

This photo is representative of the constant hard rain that fell this whole weekend, which limited the time I personally wanted to spend outside. I do love me some water droplets - the way the little upside down reflections capture the surroundings. In this case, little macro forests :)

Mycena Mushroom


mycena mushroom

We had a few sunbreaks here and there this past week, so combined with the rains we also have had, it is prime mushroom hunting time. I love these little white Mycena mushrooms. They dot the forest ground all over around here.

A big THANKS to my Mom, who got me a mushroom identification book for Christmas, which helped me find out what this type of cute little 'shroom was called! Yay!
