Fall in the Columbia River Gorge
October 31, 2013
We’ve had a fantastic fall, full of warm days and cool evenings that bring out fall colors in our foliage. I went up to Trout Lake to photograph Mt. Adams reflected in the lake; but actually think the above shot, Trout Lake Creek is my best for that day.
Into Gifford Pinchot National Forest on Mt. Adams, I think I missed the best show of fall by a week but still caught some color.
My take on this classic shot. I think I’ll go back for sunrise and sunset tries over the next few seasons and see what I can come up with.
Heading back down the mountain, I stopped at Conboy National Wildlife Refuge but saw no wildlife. The leaves were mostly past prime there also.
I did see mushrooms. All kinds and colors!
Until now I’ve never seen a mushroom as red as this one!
Not taken on the same day, but a good ending for this post, I caught this magnificent golden autumn sunset over the Columbia River Gorge. I’ve probably said it too many times but I am so lucky to live here!!
Do you feel a change in the air?
