Wintery Multnomah Falls

I'm (mostly) back from the dead! Having the flu is not a fun way to start your new year. I was able to get out before the flu crippled me to my bed over the weekend and take this wintery photo of Multnomah Falls. I love it when the mist ices up the cliffs surrounding the 620 drop of water. Another plus - they block off the bridge so there are no pesky tourists blocking an otherwise pristine view!

Hi, I am glad that you are feeling better. Your photo is breathtaking! I live in La Pine and just found your blog through Watery Wednesday.

Take care,

Glad to hear that you are on the mend! What a great shot of the falls. I went there once, in mid-Sept. and they weren't quite as impressive as they must be after the run off in the spring. Still it was really beautiful. I picked up a Multnomah Falls cross stitch kit in the gift shop and it came out pretty good if I don't say so myself!

Now that is a sight I would love to see with my own eyes but I expect I will have to be content with your lovely photo.

Oh, honey, I'm sorry that you've been ill. Thank goodness you are getting better. Mama's croupy coughing this evening so I called the after-hours-nurse and we're headed to her primary care doctor tomorrow.

This photo is so fantastic. I can't imagine getting to take it. Wow!

Please stop by on Thursday, after midnight on Wednesday even, at Portland Oregon Daily Photo to see my first ever embedded video. It shows my younger son Leland bouldering at The Circuit in Portland, Oregon, as filmed by his older brother Lamont, who also boulders.
