Fall in the Gorge

There is no better season in the Columbia River Gorge.  I love hiking the Gorge in the fall.  It is incredibly beautiful!  I've posted some photos from two of my recent October hikes to give you a sample of the Gorge in all its splendor.



Horsetail Falls



Brilliant fall colors on the Latourell Falls trail.



Upper Latourell Falls



Large yellow leaves decorate the forest



The Gorge is a patchwork quilt of color when viewed from above.



Lower Latourell Falls



Sheppard's Dell Falls



The Wahkeena Falls area is a large blast of color.



Leaves caught in the current of the stream.



Wahkeena Falls and the leaf-strewn pathway.




Fairy Falls -one of my favorite Gorge waterfalls.



Even Bear stops to admire the fall colors along the trail.

Sadly, fall never lasts long enough.  It is a short couple of weeks, and then the trees are bare.  But I did get a couple of good weekend hikes at the peak of the color.  My photos will have to tide me over........ until next year!
