Bridal Veil Falls


Bridal Veil Falls is a pretty, two tiered waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge. The access to the falls is a very easy 3/4 mile in and back walk that I did on Sunday morning before the rain started.

Bridge over Bridal Veil Creek



What a difference a week makes! This past week was just plain cold, to the point of having a bit of snow fall even in the Portland Metro area. This is not really common for this time of year. The strong winds were constant as well, so most of the leaves were stripped from the trees. It looks wintery outside now, vs. the autumn look that my photos taken just last week showed.

I did manage to get out yesterday morning and go on a short excursion into the gorge. We visited the small area of Bridal Veil, and I took this photo of Bridal Veil Creek just north of the footbridge that crosses the rushing water.

Cape Horn Overlook


Highway 14, otherwise known as the Evergreen Highway, curves along the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington side of the river. Cape Horn Overlook rests between the town of Washougal and Beacon Rock State Park. The pretty yellows of autumn really popped against the grey skies in the properties below and the foothills on the Washington and Oregon sides of the river.

Reflections in Benson Lake


This was taken at Benson State Park off of 1-84 in the Columbia River Gorge. The water was still enough along the edges of the lake to allow a beautiful reflection of the fall colors.

Scenic Byway of the Old Columbia River Highway in Autumn



The Old Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway begins just a few miles from my home and continues to wind along the Columbia Gorge to The Dalles. This is a rare straight stretch of the road, which was picturesque in its display of the pretty autumn golds and oranges.
