Portland has a river running through it, called the Willamette, which comes from the south. My work is down south just off the bank, outside a wetland called Oak’s Bottom. I would ride my bike down the Willamette – following the spring water trail – into oaks bottom, and then through it to Trackers Earth. After work I would often be exhausted and ready to take a shower and chill at home, but some days I went for a walk – to sit at the river bank, or explore some of the other footpaths in Oak’s Bottom. This one day I walked the main trail over to the lake. And got a few pictures. A hint of the purple flower explosion that occurred here some weeks before is in the one image, sorry i missed the main event. Never the less, enjoy.
