Multnomah Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in Northern Oregon State. It is located along the Columbia Gorge area of Oregon were there are over 77 waterfalls on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. This is a great area to visit waterfalls because all 77 of these waterfalls are within 15 miles of each other!
Multnomah Falls is located on Larch Mountain and plummets 620 feet. It is the 2nd highest year-round waterfall in the United States. The flow of the waterfall is usually highest during the spring and winter seasons. This photo of Multnomah Falls that you see to the left was taken during January so the water flow was pretty high. As you can also see in this photo, there is a bridge in front of the falls in which people may hike up to and continue hiking on a trail that reaches the top of the falls.

Great tripod! I’ve gone through my selection of cheap tripods over the years and I finally decided to spend a little more money to actually be able to enjoy using my tripod. For an affordable price I am very happy with the Manfrotto 7302YB Compact Tripod with Quick Release Ball Head. I love the ball head. It is so easy to use. It has a with +90°/-90° orientation grooves and repositionable locking lever. I’m using this tripod with my Canon 20D and it feels very secure on the tripod. The quick-release plate also has a safety lock on it, so it isn’t ever ejected by accident. Great tripod! Definitely recommend it!

The last time I gave Kona a haircut, I decided to try out a new look on her. I shaved all of her sides and left the center part of her hair unshaved to give her a mohawk! She only went one day with the mohawk before I shaved it completely off. It was fun while it lasted.

Kona is just a little over a year old now and as a goldendoodle she is supposed to love playing in the water. Last summer I was a little worried because she seemed really afraid of the water, but this year she is doing much better! She had a blast fetching sticks down by the river this past weekend!
