Portland Police have cited a driver for careless driving after a bicyclist reported the incident with video evidence to the police.
Living in the Portland, Oregon, area means there is convenient access to hiking trails in wooded areas. Many may think a trip to the Columbia Gorge, Mt. Hood, or the Coast Range is a way to escape the urban life and head for some dirt trails.
A long-time sign on the Sellwood Bridge becomes gender-neutral.
Wildfires throughout the Pacific Northwest fill the air with hazy smoke. The smoke creates a hazy, reddish filter for the sunset. This condition might be perfect for what I want to capture.
My friend was in town this weekend. We set out to the Oregon Coast on Sunday to explore around and shoot photos. We traveled on U.S. 30 from Portland to Warrenton for Fort Stevens and South Jetty.
Thunderstorms are magnificent and amusing to watch.
I tried to capture a few shots of lightning today of the storms that developed over northern Oregon Cascades and Mt. Hood.
Each year, many of the Portland bridges crossing the Willamette River partially close for about 20,000 bicyclists participating in the Providence Bridge Pedal. Most of the Portland bridges are open to bicyclists and pedestrians all year. The Marquam and Fremont bridges, both carry Interstate traffic, don’t allow non-motorized and pedestrian traffic.
Dee Wright Observatory is one of my top favorite places to visit. It’s the thin, wide open landscape offering limitless view that draws me here.
Lava Cast Forest in central Oregon desert is a fascinating place for me to visit. The vast lava field 11 miles east of Sunriver, Oregon, is pitted with deep holes where trees once cast a form from lava flows thousands of years ago. A one-mile paved hiking trail loops with interpretive signs loops out into the lava field. There is so much to explore and learn.
