After leaving East Glacier I spent some time in Usk Washington photographing Osprey (images to come) and from there I decided to head back to Oregon, specifically the Columbia Gorge.
There were a couple of falls that I didn't photograph last time so I went back for more. My first day back in the Gorge I did the short, but very cold, hike/wade into Oneonta Gorge. This required a chest deep wade through icy cold water...the moment the water became deep enough that my manhood was greeted by the fridged water I had the thought that it might have behooved me to tie a string to the end of it for later retrieval. Luckily, that wasn't necessary.
The next morning I hiked up above the Oneonta Gorge. This particular falls, upper Oneonta Falls, is a bit off the beaten path...I ended up in my waders hiking up the stream itself about 1/3 of a mile but it was worth it for the view that I found, and photographed.
If I'm not mistaken, this is Upper Oneonta Falls, but if any of you PNW people know for sure feel free to correct me so I can name this accordingly.
