Tom McCall Preserve

Lori, Jennette and I did short hike, between rain showers, to see the wild flowers at Tom McCall Preserve in the Columbia River Gorge. This lower section was just finishing its peak bloom and the asters were starting to bloom signaling the end of the Gorge flower season. We went for lunch at the Bargeway pub afterwards. Got to love their lunch specials.

Kelley Point Park

I had some new photo gear to test and it was a beautiful morning so I stayed close to home and went out to Kelley Point Park. There was new green on the trees, the lighting was low, big cargo ships docked, all made for good conditions to play with some cameras for a few hours.
