Wanting to see the top side of Oneonta Gorge, I headed up the loop trail, and after some fairly steep switchbacks, it began to rain, lending me that fresh smell that only comes with a starting rain. That sense kicked in just as I rounded the corner to see this beauty.
That experience was heightened by the twelve foot stumble I took when some bark gave way on a fallen tree I was trying to climb over to get to this spot. Muddy, and a little scratched up, I simply scampered back up the hill, collecting my tripod as I went, and made my second attempt. I LOVE shooting in Oregon. No joke.
