Yes, there is an up side.
We needn’t drive up the
Columbia River Gorge to see waterfalls. This is one of the larger ones, but all along Highway 30 (also known as St Helens Hwy) there are freshets like this, carrying runoff into the river.
I can enjoy this sight every time I drive to the grocery store, at least until the summer drought comes along and dries it all up.
And then there is the grass.
Doesn’t it look spectacular right now? I love it when it is all swirly and uneven and green as …well…grass.
