Orange You Glad It's Friday #21

Welcome to week 21 of Orange You Glad It's Friday!

Well, lets keep our fingers crossed that Linky Tools works better this week than last week! The site was down much of Friday, and I had people from other meme blogs commenting that their links were also down. Bummer! So lets try again, shall we?

Linda Makiej is another first timer participating last week, and submitted a great photo that really celebrates the Orange theme.  I love seeing posts from new participants as well as old, so keep spreading the word everyone. And thanks so much to everyone that stops by!

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!

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!

"High" Falls

Are you waterfall-ed out yet? I have been posting a lot of waterfall photos lately, but it is because, to me, it is waterfall season. I tend to hit up the Columbia River Gorge a lot in winter because it is so beautiful and often times much easier to access than the mountain with it unpredictable snowfall.

This is another waterfall seen on my recent hike up Tanner Creek. I could not find a name for these falls, so I dubbed them "High Falls". I am so very creative, right? But they were very high, way up in the treeline, and we could not even see the bottom of the falls from our vantage point, but I know they had to have fallen all the way to the creek below, which is still a good distance below where this picture was taken.

"Whispy" Falls

Sorry about my lack of posts so far this week. I was not able to get out this past weekend so I have nothing brand new, but I have a couple of left over photos from a few weekends agos hike along Tanner Creek to share with you though.

The first is this one, of what I dubbed "Whispy Falls". Despite my efforts, I was unable to find a name for this apparently seasonal waterfall. It falls just north of Wahclella Falls, which I posted about last week. The water almost mists down, dramatically cooling the air around you.
