We spent the day in the Columbia Gorge on Wednesday
The forest was
awash in gold.
Orchards still had a large variety of pears and apples available.
Did I mention the wildlife that we saw? It took two of us a half-hour to capture this little woodpecker!!
This kitty was adorable!
And far be it for me to visit a place that didn't have some kind of fibery offering! There is even a yarn store in Hood River!
Coming home, Mr. NK pulled off onto this little side road that ended at a boat launch into the Columbia river. We watched this gorgeous sunset transpire. Afterward, we headed to my folks' for dinner and birthday cake. Yum!
