Why do I feel like Snoopy should be sitting on the roof. This is the Niagara Heights Water Wheel and is located just off highway 22 east of Gates, Oregon. The first time I photographed this place was 11 years ago. It looked much different back then and not in a good way. About three years ago, though, the property was sold and now has a new owner.
He's done a lot of repair work and plans on doing even more in the future. Water is piped-in from Niagara Creek and powers the wheel full time, then drains into the Santiam River.
Currently, both cabin and wheel are dressed and lit for Christmas but he wants to do something for all major holidays.
If you plan to visit please be courteous and keep a healthy distance from the wheel. DON'T TOUCH! He's been kind enough to make it available to everyone who wants to photograph it and it would be a shame if he was forced to fence it off.

Where are the masses? There were none to be found. She's standing in the middle of Ankeny Square where Portland's Saturday Market usually stands. This is February, though. The market is closed January and February.
Other than a random MAX Train passing by the area was completely empty. But with a thick accent she preached loudly, as if there were hundreds in attendance. She put her entire soul into her message for..............who? I guess the light was there.

BYOP: "Bring Your Own Paper"! Actually, I see paper in one of them and more paper wedged between the two.

For many years Portland has been nicknamed "Stumptown". In fact, there's a new Cobie Smulders TV series of the same name that's based in Portland. Over the last few years, though, Portland has taken on a different identity.
With the array of possible two-wheeled rentals, whether bicycle or scooter, the city really has become a "Biketown". And, if you would rather own your own, there is that possibility, also. As the scooter riders wait for the light to turn green there's a truck pulling a trailer that's just chock-full of used bikes for sale also waiting behind them.
