One of the hardest waterfall shot's I've made was here. The crowds were huge. Understandable when one can easily walk to and view one of the highest waterfalls in America. I used my tripod more like a monopod due to the continual jostling and bumping.

Fed by underground springs from nearby Larch Mountain Multnomah Falls is the most visited natural recreation site in the Pacific Northwest with more than 2 million stopping by each year to take in the views.

Enjoy a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!

I really enjoyed all the seabirds seen along the central Oregon coast. There were several islands containing breeding grounds such as this at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Fun to watch and listen to.

There are five seabird species and one shorebird species that breed on the coastal rocks, cliffs and headlands at Yaquina Head. Brandt’s and Pelagic Cormorants nest on the rock tops and cliff faces respectively. Pigeon Guillemots can be seen on the water and on cliff ledges outside of their nest cavities, Western Gulls stake out shallow ledges and Black Oystercatchers can be seen perusing the intertidal for a tasty morsel. On the nearshore sea stacks Common Murres (seen here) cover almost every inch of exposed flat rock.

My bad, I don't use a tripod often. Always on the move. 95% of my shots are handheld. The Mures would be sharper if I had.

Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

A nicely located picnic table on the Oregon edge of the Hell's Canyon. Idaho in view on the other side.

The canyon didn't get its name from the depth of the canyon walls. It had more to do with the wild journey boats had to endure to travel thru the canyon. In the 1880s, copper and gold were discovered in the Seven Devils on the Idaho side of the Snake River. Due to it's many turbulent rapids mules were used to haul the gold out rather than boats, until the mines ran out.

Idaho has 2 rivers that were given treacherous names. The other is the Salmon River, which is known as "The River of No Return." Lewis and Clark tried to cross it, but gave up instead going further north to find a passage west.

Love those canyons they create.

Enjoy a wonderful Wednesday!

Looking S at this scenic central Oregon coast highlight.

"Cape Perpetua is located about 2 miles (3.2 km) south of Yachats, Oregon, along U.S. Route 101. It is a typical Pacific Northwest headland, forming a high steep bluff above the ocean. At its highest point, Cape Perpetua rises to over 800 feet (240 m) above sea level. From its crest, an observer can see 70 miles (110 km) of Oregon coastline and as far as 37 miles (60 km) out to sea on a clear day.

The cape was named by Captain James Cook on March 7, 1778, as he searched for the Pacific entrance to a Northwest Passage. Cook named the cape Perpetua because it was discovered on St. Perpetua's Day." Wiki

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments, faves or suggestions!

Have a wonderful Sunday and week ahead!
