Autumn Hood and the First Snow

The clouds covered Mt Hood and it began to snow up there. This picture was taken just a few days ago. Since the snow has fallen, we have been lucky enough to have had clear skies and 65-70 degree weather the past three days, and the view of the white, newly snowed on mountain is awesome. This was taken from Jonsrud Viewpoint in Sandy, OR at dusk. I love the changing leaves in the valley below!

RIP Tree

Today people are coming to take down the 50+ year old tree that lives in my front yard. The city contacted my landlord and told her she needed to take down the tree because its roots are disrupting the sidewalk that goes in front of our house. Its rather sad. In its place the landlord will plant a new tree. :(

Waterfall at Japanese Gardens

Another shot from the beautiful Portland Japanese Gardens. Yesterday, I posted a photo from one of the most famous views in the gardens. This is one of the first areas you come across when you walk in. In the summer you can see koi swimming in the waters. This day, it was just floating leaves :)

Portland Japanese Gardens

Up in the West Hills of Portland not far from downtown is the Portland Japanese Gardens. On a day like this past Sunday, there are hundreds of visitors. The weather was mild, and the leaves are in the best part of their color change.
