There was a bluegrass show of three acts in Corbett, OR. Before the show, I spotted this old place.
The turnout was impressive. There were maybe 20% more folks out of view.
The next day I found myself along the I-5 corridor; the stretch that is something of a Yosemite for Portlanders. There was another waterfall I stopped to shoot, Horse Tail Falls.
The Columbia river basalts in the gorge are much like the basalts I once cared so much about in California (the Lovejoy), but at several orders of magnitude more impressive. Columnar jointing.
Long exposures with the infrared camera are still pretty satisfying.
On Sunday I went to Hood River for the first time. There was a festival going on, and the place was loaded with tourists. It was sunny and warm. Naturally, the path less traveled appeared. Here I am somewhere around 12th and State, looking at Mt. Adams.
Volcanoes of the Cascades have taken on an unexpected importance.
Appropriate model name.
I was pleased to wander into the bike shop just before closing. The brown Schwinn Collegiate dubbed “Hot Chocolate” by my good friend Mr. Kortan will ride again finally.
The bridge over the Columbia.
Crossing the Columbia after sunset.
I find the Washington side calmer and quieter.
At the prompting of predicted good weather, I will be shooting at Mt. Saint Helens on Tuesday!
