Columbia Gorge Fire

if you’ve been following the Oregon Meander posts, you’ll know that I was just in the gorge about 6 weeks ago. 

the devastation of this sacred, beautiful place is unimaginable and I feel so very fortunate to have seen it prior to this tragedy.

I can only hope and pray that the brave firefighters on duty in Oregon get the blaze under control before further damage is done.
