Hike Pics!

07 June 2014 - 12:41 AM

I wanted to share a few pics from a couple of the latest hikes i have done. Both trails are in the Columbia River gorge area on the Oregon side of the river. 

The first two are taken from the top of Angels Rest. This is looking north across the river into Washington.

Coming down from the top, this creek and waterfall ran right along the trail in some areas.

This is Multnomah Falls and the historic Benson Bridge. You can see the damage from a boulder that fell, it was just repaired and reponed a couple weeks ago.

Easy Boot Glue On Shoes Question.

31 May 2014 - 01:23 AM

I was wondering if any one has used these and if so what did you think of them? I have had the hardest time finding a shoer since mine retired. I finally have a lady coming out to trim again at least. She has trimmed my horse once and will be out again on Tuesday. She only does the easy boot glue on shoes. If i want metal shoes i will have to try and find someone again who will do that. I have heard they can make horses stumble more due to the thickness. I am also not sure if they will work in our wetter climate or if they will hold up to all the mountainous ridding we do with water crossings as well. Thanks for any advice.

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.
