Last week was a beautiful fall week weather wise. Great, spectacular weather is something we experience in Central Washington (entirely different from the West side i.e.Seattle). Sky was blue, air was clear and foliage was in full color. Just time for a quick walk along the Banks of the Columbia River.
One of the special features of our town is the development, in the last few year, of a river walk/trail system. Initially the loop was about 11.5 miles in length. Today there are several additional extensions. But it is a great place to be, relax and exercise.
I started near Porters Pond (see above). There were a lot of Mallards on the river
There were also lots of critters but the most impressive was my partner Maggie... a long haired Dachshund that thinks the world is her oyster... which is not a bad attitude and in fact it probably is
