Recently I went on an outing to Mosier Oregon, a sleepy little town just east of Portland. Mosier is one of those towns you would never even know existed unless you make it a point to stop there. It is just one more sleepy little hamlet amongst a hundred other sleepy little hamlets one finds scattered throughout the state of Oregon. For me, I made it a point to go there because of a specific little nature trail that meanders through the middle of town along a ravine and ultimately to a lookout point above the Columbia River.
I hiked for about six hours, armed with some power bars and a Mamiya RZ67. The day was marked with a heavy amount of fog so unfortunately I was not able to take advantage of the views from the top of the trail. However, I did find this rather fantastic tree along the path that had obviously been influenced by a specific direction of the winds over the years. It was rather fantastic to look at and made for a great photograph, popping out from the mist. I must have photographed it from about ten different angles but ultimately settled on this one which gives a bit of a view of the walking path and some of the surrounding forest.
