Seasonal Waterfalls and Grass Widows

This time of year is such a joy after the dark times to have the light, and with it the earliest of flowers and the waterfalls that Grace cliffs of the gorge. Grass windows bloom even as the snow melts along the mossy seasonally wet plateaus in the eastern end of the Columbia River Gorge bordering Washington and Oregon. Snowdrops poke their heads out under the snow in local gardens, and heavy rains bring everything to life.

Most of these images except this top featured image of Snowdrops are all iPhone shots.
