The famous Punchbowl falls deep in the Columbia River gorge area. It was an overcast day, which provided perfect soft lighting needed for this capture. I left my family in the car and said: “I will be back in 1.5-2 hours”. Well, because the hike was a bit longer than expected, and having distructions along the way, it took me almost 3.5 hours to get back… It is a beautiful hike, and I would do it again (but not until my kids are older – there are some very steep sections and narrow pathways). I loved all the green and the soft rushing of the waters below.
