Multnomah Falls

We didn’t end our bike ride at Mutnomah Falls, but our week of photos is over so I better get the most famous part of this ride in. Above is the “classic view” of the double-tiered falls, complete with the bridge you can walk on between them.

Paulina Plunge

Ryan jumping in a waterfall on the Paulina Plunge tour

As previously mentioned, we had a little summer adventure in and around Bend, Oregon a couple weeks ago. The “Paulina Plunge Tour” had us hop in a bus at the Sun River Resort, drive a while, and be given a bike to begin things off. We rode about 6 miles (90%+ downhill) during the day and stopped at three waterfalls. Today’s photo is of Ryan jumping in at the base of the first waterfall.

Fish Lake Resort

Happy family ready for their shakes and malts at Fish Lake

After the news from yesterday’s entry, we got in the car and drove back to Fish Lake in order to obtain those longed-for malts and shakes. Here we are perched on the deck of the Fish Lake Resort waiting for our orders with Fish Lake in the background. Thus ends this series on the trail between Lake of the Woods and Fish Lake.

Happy Father’s Day!

toad in the hole french toast with egg in the middle

My wonderful kids made me breakfast this morning for father’s day–milk, fruit, and french toast with an egg in the middle which I had never had before. Apparently it is called “Egg in the Basket” or “Toad in the Hole.”

I tried out my new 24mm prime lens (Nikon Wide Angle AF Nikkor 24mm f/2.8D Autofocus Lens) on this shot, and I like the results. It’s very sharp, with no noise, even with the mixed lighting of mostly shadows. This little lens will definitely go in the bag for my trip to Europe later this week.

Mother’s Day in Scenic Park

Today’s photo is from Mother’s Day a few weeks back. This is what you are supposed to do with your mom on her special day. The place was Ashland’s newest park, Scenic Park near the Ashland Hospital.

Hula dancers at the SOU Hawaii Club Luau

Yuki, from Waseda University, was in pretty much every dance and did a fine job. I would have never guessed that she hadn’t done any hula dancing before this year.

15th Annual Ho’opa’a Hawaii Club Luau

Saturday night was Luau night at SOU. My view was nearly always obstructed, but I’ll post some shots from the great show over the next few days anyway.

Nevada rest stop

desert scene

I was cleaning off my laptop’s harddrive before selling it and found the above picture. I took this of Ellie and Ryan in the Nevada desert on our way to Utah in July of 2006. If I took this picture with my new camera with GPS I could tell you the exact location. We were on Highway 140/291 near the Oregon/Idaho/Nevada border. I don’t think there was another person around for 50 miles in any direction, maybe 100.

Pool effects

Before clicking on the video below be sure your speakers are on. A higher volume will provide for better effects. 😉

Fishing in the Rogue River

As each day gets a little darker and colder than the last this time of year it is fun to dip into the archives and remember what it’s like to go fishing in the nearby Rogue River in August.
