I went down to the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St. a couple of nights ago, and this sight greeted me. I had been grumbling that I couldn’t get out to take pictures before it got dark, but then this happened, and I shut up.
There’s a path at nearby Silver Falls State Park that goes next to North Falls (see a front view of the waterfall). I didn’t even know the path existed until Saturday, and it’s pretty nifty seeing the waterfall from that angle. I stuck my camera over the fence to take this shot.
I posted a photo of the waterway by Upper North Falls at nearby Silver Falls State Park from my trip up there on Saturday with Dave (of StaytonEvents.com and Maryann Nielson. Here’s a full on shot of the waterfall itself, which is 65 feet tall, and the rather large logs accenting the cascading water.
Tomorrow, I’ll have another photo from Silver Falls, so stay tuned.
Here’s another photo today from a day trip to nearby Silver Falls State Park over the weekend (see also: South Falls and the top of South Falls). This time we have Upper North Falls (and, yes, there is a regular North Falls, which I will probably post tomorrow, and I posted a picture of it last week, too).
I have a closer shot of the waterfall, but I liked the water and trees leading away from the waterfall. I’ll probably post the other photo later on.
I posted a photo yesterday of South Falls, a waterfall at nearby Silver Falls State Park. Here’s a view from the top of the waterfall, and at some of the trees surrounding the area next to the falls.
Tomorrow I’ll post another photo from Silver Falls, so stay tuned.
I am a happy camper. Dave (of StaytonEvents.com) and Maryann Nielson took me on their drive up to Silver Falls State Park again yesterday. We had a much more productive time than we did a few days ago (North Falls), where we saw South Falls, North Falls, Upper North Falls, and other scenic type things.
That means I will be posting photos of those things over the next handful of days. Today’s photo of South Falls was taken as close as we dared to get, as the path down was iced over and I didn’t want to fall down and kill myself. That would be inconvenient.
Stay tuned tomorrow, when I post something else from Silver Falls. I don’t know what it will be yet, as I haven’t looked at the rest of my photos. I should do that.
I came to the unfortunate realization that I have only this one postable photo from the last month. I took (and posted) a lot of photos of Christmas lights, and literally have nothing else. That’s a bit of an issue. Even this photo was taken almost a month ago.
This photo was taken at my old standby — the little street bridge at the south end of 4th Ave., looking towards the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.
I will do my best to get out and take pictures today, but would love some guest photographer photos of the Stayton area, if anyone is interested in sharing (go here for info). Thank you!
