Orange You Glad It's Friday #20

Welcome to week 20 of Orange You Glad It's Friday!

Did everyone have an amazing New Years?! I was in bed by 9 (sleep when baby sleeps, they say!), but did wake at midnight from the noise of the fireworks around our neighborhood. I'm not complaining though. It was good sleep, and that, to me, is a good way to ring in the New Years HAHA. I'm getting old....

This was the first time that Millie from Click'n Camera has participated in Orange You Glad It's Friday it seems, and I am glad to see every post that links up. This is a great image. Love the shadows and colors. Thanks for joining us!

Every Friday 12:01am PST, I will open the blog up for posts. Rules are simple. Post a picture that you have taken or piece of art you have created (or have permission to use) with a little or a lot of orange, share your link below, visit others and comment on their orange takes, leave a comment here if you wish.

Each week, I will feature a favorite submission from the previous week with a link to the participants blog.

DON'T FORGET -- Be sure to include an Orange You Glad It's Friday Badge or link back to this blog in your post. To add a badge, just copy and paste the HTML code from below!


I have been sending out reminders on Thursday, reminding previous participants to come back and post. But that reminder only goes to those that have participated before. Do you see a great photo on another site that has a little or a lot of orange? Suggest they stop by and submit it here! You can also get updates and reminders of Orange You Glad It's Friday on Facebook!

NOTE: Linky Tools seems to be on the fritz today, so the submission form only shows up sometimes. :( Please come back if you do not see it below!

Tanner Creek Slide Area

Standing on a bridge over Tanner Creek, the water rushing below you, you can't help but look to the left and right sides of the canyon and wonder how it got that way. The boulders in the creek bed are huge, and you can see the crevices in the rock walls above you where they fell from. There was a huge slide here in 1973, and the boulders came crashing down and created this maze for the water to careen through before making its way downstream.

Wahclella Falls

Wahclella Falls, also known as Tanner Creek Falls, is the gorgeous reward for hiking an easy, short trail in the Columbia River Gorge. The two tiered falls was running at full force when I visited two weekends ago. I love the feeling when you approach a waterfall. The air cools and the mist hits you. You know you are about to experience something breathtaking.

Rain and Oregon go hand in hand. Personally, I love it. Sure, it gets old being cooped up around May when all you want to do is go out and enjoy spring, but in December, you are lucky that it is raining and not snowing or icy. The past three months of 2012 have seen a lot of rain (22 inches!!!) As of last week, we were just around 50 1/2 inches for the year, which is only 4th wettest on record, but it has been the warmest December since 1999. So I'm not complaining. I can take rain. Cold is another story.

And with that we close another year. So long 2012. You brought a lot of changes in my life. Hoping this coming year is less eventful, but just as sweet.

Happy New Years everyone!
