Along the Columbia Gorge; finding a surprise in Walla Walla
Driving along the Columbia River on an autumn day is something else! The colours were magnificent; a few wisps of fog at first; the transition from lush conifers and deciduous trees to semi arid desert is startling and wondrous. The Multnomah Falls were flowing with rushed abandon. Closer to Walla Walla, the fog began to close in and provided a powerful feeling of unobtrusive protection.
Much like the Pigs on Parade in Seattle or Cows in Chicago, there are Walla Walla Sweets on parade in Walla Walla (see two of them above)....they are elegant and beautiful.
