I love the Columbia River Gorge. It is so beautiful. The sweeping panoramic view of the Columbia River, the multiple waterfalls, the forest, the trees, the charming old bridges, all give me a sense of peace and adventure. Whenever life or school gets too be to much, I grab my camera and drive the old scenic highway that runs through the gorge. It's become my playground. While looking through the viewfinder of my camera at the stunning landscape, the world and my troubles melt away.

After fishing on the river with Harvey (see previous posts here and here), we decided to head over to Depot Bay. We spent some time on the marina. And do you think I got any pictures of the boats? Nope, I was to busy getting rope detail photos. LOL!
We spent a lot of time wandering around this bridge and taking pictures. It was a lot of fun, and sparked some interesting conversations with the other tourists in town.

Last summer my friend Dale was in town and invited me to go fishing with him and his friend Harvey. I drove out to Lincoln City and met the guys at Harvey's river house. Dale and I spent the morning photographing the beautiful Siletz River. And Harvey and I spent the morning fishing. Yes I managed to fish and take pictures at the same time. You can see proof of my amazing multi-tasking skills on Dale's blog. I even caught a fish!! You can read about my catch here.I love the peaceful feeling that comes over me as we drift down the river.

Last summer my friend Dale came up from California for a visit. I met him and his friend Harvey in Lincoln City to go fishing and take pictures on the Siletz River. Harvey has a house on the river and goes out fishing quite often. I however have not been fishing in many many years . . . and I was never very good at it. This time however I caught a huge fish! Harvey was so jealous . . . well according to Dale anyway. (You can read his account Here, he got some fun photos of me too)
Dale was kind enough to take a photo of me and my prize fish.
