Back to the Gorge

Winter is my favorite time to drive into the gorge, because the weather varies so much from day to day. It's always a new scene.  Today's image is the companion shot to last week's post, On the Way to White Salmon. Both images taken from the same park/boat ramp just west of Cook, Washington; this one is looking west toward Cascade Locks and last week's is looking east toward White Salmon. For another winter view at this location click here. I almost didn't post today's photo, because I really object to the gray cloud reflection in the lower right. It really was a very overcast day, except for a few moments of bright sun on the nearby hills. The little house on the right is part of what appears to be a small family compound. I imagine the little homes like this one, dotting the banks on the Washington side, have been in the family for many generations.

The view is beautiful and does not look very cloudy day. I would gladly stayed in the cottage. Regards.

It looks so cold but serene and beautiful. Winter is my favorite season, too. I like to go out with a camera, bundled in the coat and feeling the cold bracing air on my camera, but I haven’t been to gorge in wintertime. Thank you for sharing.
