The Tumwater Pipeline Bridge
DescriptionTumwater Canyon in Washington is a picturesque canyon popular among photographers for its fall colors. Despite the challenge of navigating crowds, I'm determined to capture the beauty. With patience and a flexible schedule, I find unique views. On a sunny fall day, my wife and I make the journey, prepared for a long stay. The scent of evergreen trees fills the air as we trek toward our chosen spot. Slippery conditions and my lack of balance pose risks, but my wife's agility saves the day. We reach a rock area by the water, capturing a view unseen in previous photos. This first shot inspires me to plan a weeklong endeavor, feeling a deep connection to this stunning place.
