The Eagle Creek Trail is quite the feat of engineering. Not the place for small children or dogs with out a lot of self-control.
Yesterday I did something I almost never do. I headed off into the Columbia Gorge Alone with my camera (maybe more than just one) and focused on nature. I took it slow, kept quiet and made a few photos that took some time to think through and put together. I like getting out there with other people, but there's a place for this too.
