Candid Moments

Horsetail Falls

Horsetail Falls, Oregon
Old Scenic Hwy
January 2014
 The day i was out with my beautiful friend Carol we traveled down the scenic hwy to several of the falls along the old hwy.
Horsetail is one of my favorites. 
It is so beautiful!
But I guess one of my favorites is always the one I'm at.
But my two favorites in the gorge on the scenic hwy are Multnomah Falls and Horsetail Falls.
Many of you know how I love trees so this one above was a great shot for me as I centered the Falls inside the barren branches of these trees.

 As you can tell the falls does appear to look a lot like a horse's tail.
Again I wanted to get snaps of the falls with the trees as the frame work of the beauty of the cascading water.
It was very icy around the falls and on the roads. 
My hands were so numb from the chill of the day.

 It was such a great day out taking photos of the beauty surrounding us.
I am so grateful to live in such a beautiful area and to be able to enjoy it.
It is nice to be able to hop in the car and just drive about 15 minutes into the most amazing beauty created by our Lord for us to enjoy.

 The wonderful pool of cascading water.
This was another swimming hole of mine when I was a child.
You can still get into the water here.
As you see there is a staircase leading down to this pool of cold water.
Lots of rocks!

One more view of Horsetail Falls.
This one was taken a little to the left of it.
Making huge cold splashes into that water pool below.
What an adventure it must have been to come through here as a pioneer.
