As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, I grew up basically on the side of Mt Hood in a very small village called Welches. Along the south side of our community runs the Salmon River. I spent many days of my childhood at the Salmon River. The name of our street was Salmon River Rd. It was a very short bike ride or run to go dip your feet in its chilly waters.
On Saturday, my husband and I spent the entire day up on the Salmon River. He fished, and I took photos. This week I will post some of my favorites from the day.
Todays photo is of a Stellar Jay feather. I remember the jays driving me crazy when I was a kid with their loud screeching "caws" first thing in the morning. While the background unfortunatly is quite overexposed, the feather itself shows its ridges and details, plus its bold blue and black patterns.
