Friday Photo: Winter in the Columbia Gorge

leave a comment »


I spent last weekend in Salt Lake City running around Outdoor Retailer meeting an overwhelming number of people from the outdoor industry. Although incredibly hectic, it was a fun time, and topped off by a slightly crazy drive back, consisting of icy roads and an overnight stay in La Grande (funnier when said with a Spanish accent).

This photo was taken just outside of The Dalles in the Columbia Gorge; a beautiful winter day.

Salmon in Eagle Creek

leave a comment »

Spent Saturday hiking Eagle Creek Trail in the Columbia Gorge where dozens of salmon were attempting to swim upstream. That section of the creek is basically the end of their run, meaning there were already a few dead fish floating in the water. Somehow I managed to get these three on camera… how they made it over that ledge of rocks in their exhausted state is beyond me. Being that close to them reminded me of how important they are to our ecosystem, which is why we should do all we can to support them.
