Autumn Waterfall Sampler

I've been wanting to take some time to go out and "just take pictures." Mom graciously accompanied me on a trip this past week into the Gorge to do that. The day we picked turned out to be quite rainy (really not a surprise, considering the time of year), but we decided to go anyway, and I'm so glad we did. We stopped at four waterfalls around Multnomah Falls. It's really not fair--Multnomah gets so much more attention than these beautiful waterfalls that are just a few miles from it! So, I decided I would not go to Multnomah and instead spend my time on these less-famous waterfalls.

First stop: Wahkeena Falls. I don't know if you can see it, but there's water on the lens. It was really wet out there! I had a makeshift cover for my camera, though, so I could keep shooting.

Horsetail Falls

The fall colors were so lovely!

Latourell Falls

Driving down the old highway. I had fun taking "intentionally blurry" pictures. :-) 

Wet as it was, it was nice just to be out there--it's so beautiful in the Gorge! It's truly a wonderful part of God's creation. 


  1. Ashley, you pictures are amazing! As always. I love getting an email saying you've updated so I can see what you've been up to. These pictures make me want to come visit!
    The high is 40 degrees today in PA and all the leaves have fallen off the trees :-(

  2. Ashley, you have a gift for photography...what gorgeous pictures! I look forward to your updates and "talking shop". You've inspired me to take my new camera out for a spin.
    See you Thursday!

  3. Ashley, What beautiful pictures! You've gotten so good at taking pictures. They looked so professional!
