Eager to find the time to get back out and hunt the elusive Pacific Northwest Autumnal Colored Leaf. Here's Emerald Falls on Gorton Creek in the Columbia River Gorge.

The morning was, as they call it, "Chamber of Commerce weather." Not terribly exciting skies for photographers, but nonetheless, the blooms are breathtaking in the full sun.

My first sunset post of the new season... the rains have finally come to the Columbia River Gorge, which means the greens are returning as well. (And great sunsets!)

People often focus on Multnomah Falls, the tallest waterfall in Oregon and the Columbia River Gorge, but next door is the second tallest waterfall, Mist Falls. The best way to see the full 520 feet of its cascade would be out in the river, or from the Washington side. At the base of this waterfall sits the remains of a long-gone Columbia River Gorge Highway roadhouse "Multnomah Lodge." (But not Multnomah FALLS Lodge, which is still standing.)

High above the Columbia River, on the bluffs of the Cherry Orchard trail region, I went hunting for Grass Widows. Found some, like these sad little ladies, but I think Grass Widows are a tasty delicacy to the deer, for I found a lot of munch-cut Grass Widow clumps, and a LOT of deer 'sign.' Or, in some cases, what looked more like "deer gastric-intestinal distress," if you know what I mean. Plus, a half-scavanged deer carcass, complete with a coyote getting a little bit before it was all gone. Circle of life, and all that...

But, with all this warm weather and lack of snow, I suspect we'll be seeing a lot more wildflowers kicking off the season early.
