Frozen Waterfalls And Rivers, Pics!

09 December 2013 - 01:13 AM

Today my friend and I drove up the Columbia River gorge to get some pics of some of the waterfalls. The temps around here have been in the low 20's, so most of the waterfalls and pretty iced over. There are layers of ice on almost everything. It was super cold out there but gorgeous! Definitely worth braving the cold to see this. See below for pics.

These first three are all Multnomah Falls....

Smoked Salmon Chowder Recipe Anyone?

02 November 2013 - 09:23 PM

It is now getting soup weather and I am in the mood to make some. Does anyone have a good smoked salmon chowder or soup recipe that they would like to share? I had that chowder last weekend at a local restaurant and it was soooo yummy I want to make some now. I have been looking online and through some of my cookbooks and haven't found a good one yet.

A Few Pics From My Hike Yesterday...added A Few More Pics!

Yesterday my friend and I explored a couple different trails in the beautiful Columbia river gorge area. It was a sunny, nice day even though it was a little chilly. It was so pretty out with the fall colors and the waterfalls we came across were so pretty. We hiked around for a bit before we found a place to sit and have lunch at the base or Ellowah Falls. What a pretty view for lunch. After lunch we explored another really pretty trail back to Wahclella Falls. See below for a few pics.

This pic shows most of Wahclella Falls. What the pic doesn't show is above the falls coming down the left cliff side before turning and coming down as what you see is the rest of the falls.

Dental Implants, Q's

21 October 2013 - 11:54 PM

Anybody have one? Experiences? I have a tooth that I broke a few years ago that there has been multiple attempts to fix it and they only last so long. The last attempt made it worse as more of the tooth broke off making it unrepairable. So next Tuesday I get to go in for a dental implant. I am sooooo nervous and not to sure what to expect. I have had oral surgery before to remove an abcess that was in my bottom jaw in the bone years ago. This will be on top, right next to the front teeth. Any advise? I have a temp crown on now till next week.

Trail Ride From 10/12/13

21 October 2013 - 12:12 AM

Went to the Twin Lakes area on October 12th with my friend. It was a chilly cloudy day but we still had fun. When we started out it was only 36 deg and was about 44 by the time we were done. It was really pretty with the fall colors and the lakes. My horse decided after a drink that it would be fun to splash in the ice cold lake. He swished the water around with his nose first then started pawing at the water splashing it everywhere! He had us and my friend and her horse soaked but we couldn't help but laugh, he was having so much fun playing in the lake. Now onto some pics.....

Starting out....
