It was my volunteer day at Multnomah Falls today. After my sister and I had lunch in the lodge and before we began our volunteer shift we walked up to the viewing plaza to see how much water was coming over the falls and it was a *LOT*.. it was *ROARING*!
At the plaza if you look to the right you can see a waterfall that is only active during heavy water days.. it's pretty.It was pretty misty there on the plaza and the roar of the water was loud!
7500 gallons of water PER SECOND goes over the falls when the water is running high - that is a lot of water, folks!
The moss loves this place.. nice and moist.
3 trees and a rock.. and some ferns.
A look back on our way back to the lodge.

This is a shot from behind the information desk.. I worked on my bear during our shift in between visitors.
I crocheted the 2 ears today after I sewed on the 2 legs. Almost done.. I've decided to embroider the eyes, nose and mouth on as it will be more "home made" than if I bought some eyes. Don't you think?
In other news.. I'm rather excited about something. I have re-acquainted with a high school friend via Facebook, her name is Kevynne. She is a talented weaver. I'd put a photo of one of my baskets on Facebook and she commented that she'd just taken a basket weaving class at the Damascus Fiber Arts School and suggested I take a class. So, I emailed the school and asked to be notified when they would be having another class and a few days ago they let me know they were planning a cedar bark basket class using the Skokomish & Tsimshian Indian techniques. So, I signed up! I also signed up for 2 spinning workshops. I will be taking my own spinning wheel there and an extra benefit of that will be that the instructor can look at my wheel and tell me if I have it set up with the proper tensions, etc. Woo hoo! Needless to say I will take photos and share it with you. The first workshop is in just 2 weeks!
Also.. on Tuesday my 2 sisters and I met for lunch at Macaroni Grill and then went to see the movie "The Descendent" with George Clooney. It was a very serious movie and had a lot of sad parts, but it was set in Hawaii and I just loved seeing all the island scenery and the sound track was wonderful Hawaiian music. It was worth seeing for those two things.. oh.. and George Clooney's adorable mug. After the movie we were chatting in the mall food court area and talked my older sister into buying an iPhone 4S! :-D Now all of us 4 siblings have one! Fun!
I hope you're having a good week and have fun plans for the weekend. Thanks for visiting!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
