Most of my travels are in Central America; if that's the blog you're looking for, here it is: Hopefulist in Latin America.

This is the blog for photos and reflections of my visits to other places, beginning in 2013. Previous blogs are linked on the main pages of my photo collections on flickr.

SPONTANEOUS WATERFALL HIKE - Columbia River Gorge, May 2015

Hi, all -

I had a fabulous mom. She grew up in Gresham, Oregon and loved the falls in the Columbia River Gorge. When I was little and she would wash my hair, she named each glass of rinse water after a gorge waterfall; I can hear her voice in the sound of the water when I visit them. Yesterday: Wahclella, Horsetail, Multnomah, Wahkeena, Bridal Veil, Shepperds Dell, and Latourell. Then quick stops at Crown Point and the Women's Forum Overlook, an ice cream from Corbett Country Market, and a new ugly dog for my collection from a Troutdale antique vendor.

Ugly dog - looks shamed. It qualifies for my collection in 2 categories: 1) Is that a dog?! and 2) If I saw it in real life I'd be creeped out.
