Mystical

About the time I made it into Oneonta Gorge in Oregon, part of the larger Columbia River Gorge natural area, it had begun to lightly rain. My short hike into this absolutely beautiful world was met with some concern. First, the trail starting into the Gorge is made of a cold stream. So it was cold wet, and rainy, but that did not discourage me a bit about visiting this area for the first time. Previous travel photos I had seen of the Columbia River Gorge, lured me across the country to this spot. And my sense of adventure was totally peaked. Next, now that I was wet, I had to climb a twenty foot fallen log dam. This wooden barrier was completely slick with very little places to grab unto. One fall here and this trip would be over! Carefully I balanced and crawled with my forty pound back pack. I remember thinking that I should have secured some equipment insurance before I came here!
