An early morning fast urban hike along Pre’s Trail, the Mill Race and Willamette River. Cool temperatures in lower 40s, dense thick, wet fog and very few humans until later. A great way to work off some holiday feasting.
Friends along Mill Race
Oddly, at different times, Great Blue Herons perch in trees – not just to nest, but to look around. This one could not have seen much with the fog, but that perch was too good to pass
The geese formed a train of sorts in the Mill Race and just paddled along with the one right in front … a train, a water snake …
One crow who would just not pass up a photo opportunity!
Started around Ferry St Bridge and then head up the river until Pre’s Trail bark dust trails – then past the Springfield boat ramp to end of bark dust and the return.
