Photographer's Note

White River Falls begins from the White Glacier on Mt. Hood and is infamous for developing massive avalanches that close Hwy. 35 between Mt. Hood and Hood River, Oregon. The falls is a large basalt outcropping some 50 feet in height, and at one time, had a power plant below the falls several hundred yards. The buildings are still in place, and quite an eye sore if you ask me. The White River runs into the Deschutes River before flowing into the Columbia river many miles distant. The State Park here is a great location to relax during the heat of the summer as it has tables, green grass, and has a manager living onsite that keeps the area clean, as well as the grass mowed so we all can see where we are sitting. I have visited the park many times, and the last before yesterday I managed to capture a doe and her fawn 's pixs. The doe would walk off to graze as the fawn laid down on the grass to rest, and only with a few looks over her shoulder was she concerned over my presence, even as I stood and took my pics.
Yesterday, with all the rain we have suffered through here in the Pacific Northwest this winter, one could here the roar of the falls from nearly an 1/8 of a mile, and see the mist rising from nearly the same distance.
