Photo of the Day: Ominous Sandy River Delta Sky

Today I took my girls (including the dog) hiking at Sandy River Delta, just east of Troutdale. A huge off leash area, it's a great place to let your furry (and not so furry) children run off some energy on miles of trails.

The weather has been typical late winter/early spring: clouds, rain, hail, snow, sun and repeat. We got lucky and were able to squeeze our hike in during one of the sun breaks. However, ominous skies approached as we neared the trailhead, as you can see in the photo below.

Note: My friend Sarah loves sky pictures. I thought of her when I snapped this with my iPhone.

Photo of the Day: Bridge of the Gods View

The Bridge of the Gods crosses the Columbia River at Cascade Locks. This image was captured mid-span, looking east towards Hood River.

Photo of the Day: Frosty Ferns

When the east wind blows through the Columbia River Gorge during the winter months, it sometimes freezes everything in it's path. That was the case this past December when I was hiking along the Eagle Creek trail near Cascade Locks.

Photo of the Day: Sunset at Three Arch Rocks

As some of you may know, my friend Sarah came to visit again recently. This time I took her for an adventure along the northern Oregon Coast. We were lucky enough to see this sunset from the porch of our cabin in Oceanside.

Photo of the Day: Making Friends

My family met this little guy at Bonneville Fish Hatchery yesterday.

I guess you can say we had him eating out of the palm of our hand.
