Since we were promised only a couple of dry hours at the begining of the day we thought we would finally go and check out what's on our own doorsatep, Oxbow Park! We live about half a mile as the crow flies from the Equestrian Trail Head & the Back Door into Oxbow Park.

Willamette Falls at Oregon City after a week of heavy rain!
Wednesday, January 18, 2012
Sunday the 15th we had nice snow, today Wednesday the 18th we had bad snow! Started falling about 8pm Tuesday evening & by 10pm there was about 5" of heavy wet snow on the ground! Shortly after that the power went out! Luckily the power came back on about 4am so we didn't have to go rooting around in the garage to find the camp stove to make the morning coffee on! 2" of rain followed the snow then winds gusting to 30mph. A lovely day!

At this time of year when the light is just right, you can see the light at the top of the Palmer Ski Lift (9000') shinning just over the ridge of the mountain. Further down the same silhouette line of the Mountain you can see 2 square blocks which are the ski lift buildings at the base of the Palmer lift. Google maps tells me it's 30 miles in a straight line between where I took the photo & the light!
