It's Outdoor Wednesday
A few weeks ago, we took a trip to the Washington coast, and on the trip we had to go over the Crooked River Gorge in Oregon.
It had been several years since I had been this way, so I made the Handyman stop so I could take some photos.
It's hard to get perspective in photographs sometimes, but this is really deep.
That is a train bridge above.
Stop by and check out other great photos of the outdoors!
The "The Crooked River Gorge" is halfway between Bend and Madras, Oregon.
There is a small visitors center and a nice park and a trail beside the gorge.
A nice place to stop for a travel break, although the Handyman wouldn't do the bungee jumping from this bridge.
He will, however, walk around a bit with me.
(actually, it's me who will walk around with him--he's a better hiker/walker than I am)
Volcanoes in the distance
I thought it looked cool thru the railway trusses, so I took lots of pictures.
He was trying to get his own good photo!
And after we left?
On to Mt Hood!
I love them.
Weird, I know. But I'm originally from the Pacific Northwest--
Home is where the volcano is?
I even was there (in 1980) when Mt. St. Helen's erupted.
Okay, not 'there', but a couple hundred miles away. But we saw the volcanic ash sky coming our way.
