Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Yesterday was one of the first sunny days we have had this cold, cold spring.
With it still snowing in most of the high country, we went to Catherine Creek on Columbia Plateau north and east of Hood River.
This wasn't a day for vert.
It was just a day for being glad to be out in a cold wind, to see tiny buds of wildflowers about to pop open, to hear the creek running fast, to see a lone coyote running below us. The rodeo started when we ran into a horse.
It was a good day. The only bummer was that Bodhi picked up a tick.

weird rock formations

Catherine Creek

endless vistas

Bodhi and me above the Columbia

big oak with no buds yet

Where's that horse again?

Love that over the river shot. I forget how scenic it is out there. Haven't been there in over 15 years. Thanks for adding to the not Colorado collection.

Gorgeous pics! Makes me miss that area sooooo much! Hopefully someday we'll move back to WA so we can get some more of that.

Is that on the OR/WA border or something?

Yes. It's east of Hood River, OR. You have to cross the Columbia on the two lane Hood River bridge and drive east on WA 14 through Bingen. WA to get to Catherine Creek.
