My daughter-in-law, Ann, taking pictures at the edge of a cliff overlooking the Columbia River across from Vantage, Washington. Shaun gave her his Nikon P80 camera when he upgraded to the P90, and he has been teaching her how to use it.
The Columbia River was carved out of this volcanic rock when the icedam that was holding Glacial Lake Missoula broke and flooded western Montana, Idaho and Eastern Washington. The cliff across the river is part of the Ginkgo Petrified Forest State Park.
Taken by Shaun Emerson in September, 2010, with a Nikon CoolPix P90 camera.
