Oxbow Park

The salmon are swimming upriver to spawn. This past week I drove to Oxbow Park just east of Portland to check out the Sandy River and to see if I could spot any salmon. I was hoping to take a dramatic photo of salmon leaping out of the water like this: (nope, not my photo!)

But I did stare at the river for a very long time searching for salmon.  

  And then I gave up and had a picnic in the shade of the giant trees

 and wandered through the trails admiring the ancient forest.
