Fresh Start

Happy New Year to all my blog friends!  I'm starting the new blog year out with another Zigzag River photo taken after a nice coat of snow on the 29th. We went up to Mt. Hood for another hike on the 30th (our anniversary), and this time we brought along the tire chains which of course we didn't need.  As far as photos go, I might be slightly partial to the less snowy scenes, but I have to say that walking through the woods here was magically beautiful!  Cold but calm, which is why the snow was still on the branches during our visit.  (Also, Linda, I did see your note about the sno-park off of 35.  It sounds nice, and I will get up there soon, I hope.  Thanks for the tip!)  :)

Oh those tire chains can be fun! NOT. But the photo is beautiful and I am sure the hike was fun. Nice to see the new year postings.

I wish you a happy 2015 years. View of the forest like a fairy tale.

Adventurous photo. Very beautiful with its snow and natural disarray of fallen trees. -- barbara

I love snow scenes, and how DO you get that wonderful mystical effect on the water? Beautiful photo :)
