It snowed in the Portland Metro area yesterday evening. Man, what a mess it makes when the snow leaves its normal "home" up in the mountains and comes down into town. Traffic accidents galore - its almost like a panic! We do get a good snowfall almost once a year, but it always seems to catch people off guard. Luckily, this morning, the temps are higher and the snowfall is already slushy and melting away.
I prefer the snow to stay up in the mountains, such as is pictured above. I took this photo Sunday on my hike up to Bagby Hot Springs (see posts this week for more of our adventures). This is crossing a bridge over one of the creeks heading up the trail, Whetstone Creek.
