New Release – “Pandora”

Artist Comments

The need for adventure and solitude took me on a journey to one of Mother Earth`s most beautiful hidden canyons.

Deep inside an enchanting rainforest lies a spectacular moss, lichen and fern-clad slot canyon. A unique ecosystem that has remained unchanged for thousands of years.

To reach this hidden gorge I had to wade up a creek in waist-deep water and climb an extremely treacherous log jam at the mouth of the canyon.

Beyond the log jam, the gorge opened up and revealed a fairy tail scene out of this world. Untouched by modern civilization. I felt like I had entered the world of Avatar. The serenity of the scene made me breathless”.

The lower gorge has been cut by the creek through layers of basalt flows dating back 25 million years ago to the Miocene epoch

The Lower Gorge also has the distinction of being a United States Forest Service designated biological reserve area which is home to several rare species of mosses, ferns, lichens, and hepatics (Liverworts) that are found nowhere else on earth, but within the Columbia River Gorge.

The Oneonta Gorge was sadly severely affected by a fierce wildfire that destroyed a large forests areas in the Columbia River Gorge. It is now closed due to violent destruction and accumulation of burnt-out logs. Access is severly restricted with a long-term permit system, giving this area a much needed rest.
