  Wordless Wednesday - Sunrise on Mt. Adams   I love the way the early morning sun hits Mt. Adams as it finally rises over the horizon. Mt. Adams may be the smaller of our "Twin Peaks" (along with Mt. Hood), but it can be a pretty impressive sight on a winter morning, too.

  Speechless Sunday - Winter Bath   This is the birdbath in our front yard... hopefully no birds will be using it any time soon, as I'd hate to see them popcicle-ized in the process!

Uke Fest is short for Ukelele festival. ...

  Friday's Foto - I Believe I Can Fly!   This is a continuation of my series of summer photos. This is our son, Ben, about three years ago.

  Wordless Wednesday - Skiing For Everyone!   I was looking through some older photos and came across these of our 13 year old son, Sam. Three years ago, Sam broke his leg skiing, but even that didn't end his ski season. He had the opportunity at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort to try out the "sit-sk...

  Wordless Wednesday - Haunted Orchard?   I'm trying to see the beauty in the winter gloom, but I'm getting more of a "haunted" vibe from this photo of a winter orhard here in the Hood River Valley. Maybe it's the way the branches seem to be sinister, reaching for something, or maybe it's the ver...

  Speechless Sunday - The Columbia River Gorge In Winter   Mel took this photo from the town Bingen on the Washington side of the Columbia River Gorge, looking west. I love the mist covered cliffs as they descend down to the river. The gorge looks so different at every time of the year and at dif...
