Coopey Falls

Secluded in one of the busiest parts of the Columbia Gorge between Angels Rest & Multnomah Falls is a Small Convent complete with small holding farm belonging to the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist. On these private grounds is one of the lesser seen Columbia Gorge Waterfalls Falls, Coopey Falls. Today we were kindly given permission to visit these falls.

The Enchanted Gorge & Glacier Lilies

Spent a lovely Sunday hiking on the Eagle Creek trail & taking some of the countless unofficial side trails along the way! Here is a somewhat hidden spot that has become known as the Enchanted Gorge.

The Glacier Lilies were also out in Full Force.

The Cherry Circle.

Well lack of funds & time have stymied my grand plans for a Yew hedge Maze or a living replica of Stone Henge so I've settled for a cherry circle, 16 Yoshino Cherries planted around the 100' diameter circle. Now what do I do with it next?
