    What Mt is that Matt???

  2. Lance says:

    Dinner!…If a locomotive hits it.

  3. Don in Tennessee says:

    That goat will look baaaaad if this Z train just leaving Wishram heded for Avery hits it!

  4. dionne says:

    you do realize how lucky you are to have views of mt. hood and rainer don’t you?? they are gorgeous up close. were you able to see any part of mt. saint helens? that area always impressed me. when i was younger-we drove up mt. hood to the lodge–at the bottom it was sunny and gorgeous, at the lodge it was snowing. my sister had fallen asleep and woke up at the lodge to the snow and her comment i believe was “where the hell are we? what happened?”

  5. Don in Tennessee says:

    OK-try again.

    Once you click on the link above

    1. click on photo on left
    2. click on train video for Z train to Avery
    3. click on vidoe 2:14 – it makes you feel like you are there

  6. Nowherebeach says:

    Well, you are almost finished. That’s Mt. Hood in the background.
    Please do us Oregonians a favor. Don’t take any more photos of beautiful sunny days and wonderful vistas. Wait until it rains, which won’t be long. Tell people that when you got to Oregon you found a man out walking his pet salmon. Another fellow reported a UFO but it turned out to be the sun. Dogs with short legs often drown — and so on. Most people would not like it here, especially those from the East Coast. Many thanks!

    • Jeff says:

      right….next time I hear about the gloomy weather out there and Washington I will be thinking of a two letter word that is another way of saying Male Cow Manure…… I am just saying. too late to cover up the real beauty and now on to the conspiracy theory why.

      • Belle Zora says:

        When my son was 5, one beautiful early summer Seattle morning, he came running to me in alarm saying, “Mommy, Mommy what’s all that stuff in the sky?” I told him I didn’t see anything, that there wasn’t even a cloud in the sky. He cried, “That BLUE stuff, Mommy. What’s all that Blue stuff?”

        True story.

  7. John in MI says:

    Absolutely gorgeous Matt. Great shot.

  8. Gigi says:

    Is it one of the Billy Goat Gruffs trying to cross the bridge because the grass is greener on the other side?

  9. Candice in Alabama says:

    Goat, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere.

  10. Amy says:

    This is wonderful windsurf spot. Over the past 3-4 months it’s been blowing 25-30mph out of the west at this location 3-4 days a week. You may be seeing lots of kiteboarders and windsurfers soon.

  11. MARY says:

    Great train ride Don, thanks..awesome!

  12. Jeff says:

    Jerked Goat…..what is your weapon of choice Matt….Bear Spray…..?

  13. Jeff says:

    i’ll see your Yum and we will have a yum yum. two weeks from yesterday…Jerked Goat here I come.

  14. Robert says:

    man, took me a while to finally see the goat.

  15. Karen Too says:

    It’s probably heading down for a cool drink of water.

    The deer around here do it several times a day, crossing a busy route to get to/from the creek (that is more like a river) right across from my house.

  16. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Did he say “Cheese” ?

  17. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    Really nice shot of Mt. Hood. I’ve been waiting for this for some time now. Me like!

  18. Janine says:
