About the author
My name is Mark B. Gibson, I currently work as a photojournalist and writer at The Dalles Chronicle in The Dalles, Oregon. The genesis of this blog is a personal project I began in the fall, an “Ongoing Voyage of re-Discovery,” an intimate look at “The Big River,” the Columbia, primarily its middle portion from Bonneville Dam to Arlington, Oregon.
In addition, I plan to post articles once published in the Chronicle under my column “Kicking back,” as well as new work that has found no home in recent years. Themes or categories include photojournalism and newspapers, rural life and the great, and not-so-great, outdoors.
