Along the Willamette

March can be spectacular in Willamette Valley – the subtle shifting from winter to spring is underway. The animals – especially the birds – are acting “spring”, pairing up, strutting around, singing loudly atop the tallest trees around … over used cliche, but as they say, … a symphony.

A cage and a clever goose deterrent …

The walk

Eugene has a great walk / bike trail along the river on both sides (OR Hiker, All Trails) … this was mostly on the north and east side of the river fading to the wilder lesser developed. Some on bark dust chips, some on cement (good shoes required). The length can be adjusted shorter / longer at every bridge.
