Spring is in the air...

It's time to pull out the old hiking shoes and head into the great outdoors. I recently found out about Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge along the Willamette River. Approximatle 170 acres of marshland starting by the Sellwood Bridge and extending almost to the Ross Island Bridge in Portland. With the nice weather today I thought this would be a good day to check it out.



My foot's not completely better yet since I was limping pretty badly before I got back to the truck but since the exercise is supposed to be good for it I'll just have to try not to overdo it. No more 3 hour hikes for a while. :( Guess I should have started slower but it was such a nice day for a hike.
