I took this series of photos from the sand bar at the mouth of the White Salmon River this last Monday when temps hovered around 18 degrees F before factoring in wind factor.  I not sure who was the craziest, this man and child, or me, the crazy photographer!  🙂 Any opinions on the bestContinue reading “Frozen Fishermen”
