Winter in the Gorge

After the recent ice storm that hit the Portland area, I decided it might be worth risking the roads to see the ice that had accumulated in the Gorge. Ever since I moved to Portland a little over a year ago I have seen photos of the winter wonderland that the Gorge becomes when it gets cold enough, and I have been trying to get a weather window that would provide enough snow and ice. 

Lucky for me I had this spot all to myself, which I have never had happen in the normally Gorge. The ice was near thick enough to stand on allowing me to get over the water a bit for my first image. I say near thick enough because right after I took it I took a spill into the creek myself. 

I didn't have time today to check out the other falls in the Gorge and it appeared that they had closed part of the historic highway leading towards Multnomah Falls, but hopefully I'll get another shot like this before winter is over.
