I'm Back Oregon adventure



3 days away from the computer, hate to say it but loved it! Went from this (picture left)- Multnomah falls on the Columbia River Gorge near where I grew up to (pic top) Crooked River in Prineville Central Oregon 2 hours drive away. Completely different climates. Prineville is very dry. Troutdale is windy and moist. Alot more diverse plants in Troutdale, but Prineville has some new friends that I plan on finding, you won't find cattails, sage brush or Junipers in Troutdale, along with a lot more plants I plan on getting to know in Prineville this summer. I took some pictures of plants near the Gorge that I plan on identifying, look for those in my next blog post!

Ooh, I've been to the Columbia River gorge, too, and to multnomah falls! (and a couple other falls along the road there). Lovely scenery, and an abundance of plants.

I love where I live,Troutdale Oregon. Born and Rasied. Im 23 and now find myself trying to Fight for the Gorage. Due to the local tribes trying to build Casinos. My biggest frear is that if it (the casons) go up, the gorage will go down!!! People see doller sings, but i see Problem signs!! We need to Stop These people before every thing is lost!!!
