Continuing the Mushroom Theme- a hike in the woods

The conditions have been perfect in the Pacific Northwest to encourage mushroom growth. There were so many to discover on my hike this weekend at Tryon Creek State Park.

There is something about walking through the crunchy leaves with a crisp edge to the air. It’s Fall in Portland and it isn’t raining!

A Fall Stroll in Nuremberg

This is my first fall in Nuremberg.  The leaves on the trees change differently here and in a lot of cases, simply fall to the ground to compost without flair.  Here are two photos from my walk today:

Sauvie Island in the Fall

My friend Georgia and I headed out to Sauvie Island to check out the corn maize at Bella Organic Farm.  We wandered for a while through the corn and then decided to explore the island and its Fall beauty.
