This week the photo challenge from WordPress is Beyond.While walking thru the area around Multnomah Falls and Wakheena Falls in Oregon I found many little waterfalls hidden beyond the next corner in the path. Here is one as I approached it – you can see it just beyond all of the foliage. And the second is the waterfall as I came to face it. Enjoy!
If you can’t tell from most of the photos on my blog, I love the outdoors and nature. So when Where’s My Backpack posted the Mystical challenge I was so excited and thought of several right away. But I wanted to show something new instead of just ones I’ve shown before. So here are two new ones and one you have seen before.
This first one is from a favorite spot in the middle of America. Hot Springs, Arkansas. The springs to me are very mystical. The history of the town and the springs is even more mystical and interesting. Hubby and I go back when we have any excuse to though it isn’t a place that screams “visit me”. (and we’re headed back for a weekend in December for another art show I was selected for!)
The next photos are from the Columbia Gorge area – around Multnomah Falls and Wakheena Falls. The first one is new to you – just a passing small waterfall along the pass.
This last one I’ve shown before and I am still in love with it. I call it my pixy home. Siggghhhh….
Green – a beautiful color in nature! I’m not so fond of it in other areas and not certain why…. hmmm…
OK, back to the topic at hand. These two photos were taken in the area around Multnomah Falls and Wakheena Falls. I am in love with the first photo of the leaf with the raindrops!
The second photo is of a waterfall in the area. I like the stone around it and the lovely green against the bubbly water.
The gorgeous falls area in the Columbia River Gorge near the famous Multnomah Falls is absolutely beautiful!! I was mesmerized by the nature and impressed by the cleanliness of the trails. So here is my favorite spot from my hike and I swear if I come back in another life as a pixy this will be my summer home!!
You may remember a couple of days ago I asked for some assistance with a quote for my quotography project that I am participating in.
Well, sadly, I didn’t get any advice from my lovely viewers. I know that y’all were actually sending it to me telepathically but my interpreter is on the skitz….
Anywho, I thought I would share my submissions with you – as I just sent them off to the project folks. Here you go- Enjoy!
Quote 1: Never look back unless you are planning to go that way. – Henry David Thoreau
This shot is of my Jeep. It is taken from side rear mirror of the front windshield. So in looking back I am actually looking to the glass that I would look through to drive forward. It seems that you may have to remember all those things that you learned but always keep your eye on the road that you are currently going down….
Quote 2: I have a camera in my hand, I know no fear. – Alfred Eisenstaedt
Hiking is a love of mine. But heights are not. So I braved my fear of heights and hiked almost 2 miles, according to my pedometer, up to Fairy Falls. It was so worth the trip!! (on a side note: I usually have no fear when trespassing on someone’s property in the name of getting a photo of THAT – whatever it may be! And I usually get in trouble from my hubby about this little lack of fear. But capturing the photo of this lack of fear would have gotten me in trouble so I went with my second choice.)
Quote 3: All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
I LOVE cupcakes! And I love cupcake shops. My problem is that I can never decide on a flavor that day so I end up buying half a dozen trying to see which is my favorite. But then I like them all and so I still don’t have a favorite. But this is one experiment that I love doing time after time after time!
For our honeymoon we made a fantastic cruise to Alaska! Wow! What scenery – just amazing! Thought I would share a few with you. Enjoy!
