I wanted a photo of Tamawanas Falls under a dusting of snow. The falls are located on the Northeast side of Mt. Hood at an elevation of about 3500ft. By the middle of November it was starting to snow fairly regularly at the falls. On the morning I planned my trip it was snowing alright, in fact when I arrived at the trail head it was snowing so hard I was worried the trail would get buried while I was at he falls and I would not be able to find my way back! With this in my mind I hurried up the snowy 2 mile trail to the falls. The hike in was a beautiful peaceful, experience in a winter wonderland! A thick dusting of fresh snow covered everything. When I arrived at the falls the area was coated in white just as I had imagined! As I captured my images it began to snow really hard. Soon, it started snowing so much I had to stop shooting and rush back to my car before the trail disappeared under a blanket of white. Luckily I could see faint traces of my tracks from the way in so the hike out was uneventful, but stunningly beautiful! Mission accomplished.
