Beautiful Fall Afternoon

I thought about how many times the Fall colors have surrounded this old bridge, built 90 years ago.

Fall comes to Coldwater Lake

Tomorrow may be the first day of fall, 
but there was lots of color early Friday morning!

...On A Grand Scale

Looking just to the right from my last picture...
Mt. St. Helens is on the right, looming large.  It is poofing steam, but most of what you see is the coastal overcast which stops there.  In the distance, on the left, is Mt. Adams, about 50 miles away.  To give some idea of the scale, the "mound" below Mt. Adams, in the left center, is Johnston Ridge.  It's nearly 2000 feet above the beginnings of the Toutle River, which you can see glistening in the early morning sun.

Gothic Forest

Gothic Forest
Sometimes just looking up in the forest 
is like being in an ancient cathedral.

It's Still Green...

The colors of Autumn haven't yet reached this end of
Coldwater Lake.  
So calm and quiet, early in the morning...

Not So Wetlands

The lake is down about a foot and a half, and this has been the driest and most consistently warm August-September we can recall.  But the early fall colors are beautiful!

I don't know if yellow caterpillars are common,
I just know I've never seen one before!

Windy River

The wind was very strong this day, and gave the Columbia a very milky look--- East of The Dalles, Oregon.
