The winter storms are quickly piling up and the snow in the mountains is already looking pretty impressive (Ski areas are all open a week before Thanksgiving, which seems to me to be earlier than last year). I got out a couple more times in the last two months but due to heavy work schedule haven't had the motivation to do a whole lot, so this will be a small update and probably the last major one of the year (though I may get to one or two of the lowland waterfalls between now and the year's end, and I probably have some backlogged pictures to upload).
Included in this update are a smattering of new pictures for some of the falls in the Columbia River Gorge, including the long awaited log-less Punch Bowl Falls. Measurements for all the falls in the Gorge I visited are also updated. Also new are four rather impressive waterfalls along Bear Creek in the Baker River drainage and Lower Sulphur Creek Falls near the Baker Dam.
Last announcement of the day, I'll be posting the schedule for my 2010 Waterfall Photography Workshops by the end of the year. I'll be offering at least 4 workshops this year, more if enrollment fills up fast. To pique interest, this year will see one held in the Columbia River Gorge, as well as Mount Rainier National Park and the North Cascades. Watch the blog for the announcement.
