    This is an archive shot of the scenery along the trail to Wahclella Falls prior to the Eagle Creek Fire in the Columbia River Gorge. This trail was recently reopened but I have not been able to hike up it to see what things look like now. The descriptions from the damage assessments suggested that the fire damage was down to the root level and almost none of the vegetation in this image survived.


    C&C always welcome.

    Nice foliage. Pity about losing it all to fire.

    Nice shot and one you are not likely to repeat in your lifetime.

    This is nice, and I hope you will be able to get back in there again soon for a little exploring. Maybe you need to invest in the little Sony A6400 or so for a lightweight system to carry around.
