Slatted Stroll

On Sunday, my brother, son and I visited the Camassia Natural Preserve in West Linn. I had never been to the park before, but it was worth the mile stroll. The preserve trail is mostly these slatted footbridges, which leads you through rocky plateaus and marshy wetlands. We came a few weeks too late to really get the effects of the wildflowers, as the blue ones pictured here are the namesake of the preserve, Common Camas, normally are much more abundant. We apparently came to visit during the yellow Buttercup stage ;)

A Pop of Orange

Our rains had returned last week, and with it, more mushrooms. I do not mind. They are so fun to find and photograph. These tiny orange fungi were only about 1/2 inch tall, and I almost didn't even see them!
