The Cascades

 

 

My son is currently visiting us from Melbourne and we’ve really been enjoying showing him around the county (it’s actually his third time here but there’s always more to see). He really seems to love the place (not to mention our proximity to both NYC and Philly).

Yesterday, he and I took a hike along the Columbia trail in High Bridge. I’d never done the walk in winter and was amazed by how different it all looked.

Several times along the way we came across little patches of wonder. I don’t think I ever realised before how beautiful mere frozen water could be.

    1. He was keeping a wary distance but watching us to see what we’d do. It’s unusual to see racoons out in daylight and it can sometimes mean they are sick (rabies) so we were keeping a wary distance too. He looked pretty healthy, though, so he was probably just feeling adventurous.
