The Clear Waters of the Salmon River

Can you believe this water? It is so crystal clear! I had to stop and take a picture because it is just incredible how pure and clean the water is up on the Salmon River. The Old Salmon River Trail is my old stomping grounds, and having been there 100's of times, I am still amazed every time by the beauty. There is always something that stops me in my tracks and makes it impossible not to get my camera out!

My Deer Friend

So I am up near Mt Hood Meadows walking back from Umbrella Falls a few weekends ago. My always helpful mom took my son ahead on the trail so I could take a few last photos before heading back down to the car. I walked a short distance to catch up to them when I noticed a young deer off at the other edge of this meadow. I stopped and quietly changed my lens. When I looked up, the deer was halfway across the meadow, walking calmly right for me. Just as I was about to snap my shutter, my son came running up yelling "Hey Mommy!!!" The deer changed its course at that point, heading back into the woods. But I was able to capture this shot of it peeking around a tree, looking at my son as he squealed in delight, "A deer!" We see a lot of deer, but this inquisitive youngster was really fun to come across.
