Mid-November brought a snow storm to our area and I happened to have the day off already. So, wanting to go out in the snow, I headed up the Gorge to see some waterfalls. First, I went to Panther Creek Falls. The snow was falling and it was beautiful. There was lots of ice coating everything as well.

The snow really started to fall, so I headed back down to lower elevation and across to Oregon. I parked at the Eagle Creek trailhead, which was completely empty (usually a very busy spot). I hiked to Metlako Falls:

I made it home safely and enjoyed my snow day.
