This afternoon I took a two mile mid-day hike through Kelly Point State Park in Northwest Portland. The park is nestled at the confluence of the mouth of the Willamette River as it empties into the Columbia River. The two major waterways partly frame the park before merging into one mighty body of water. Large ships and barges regularly use the trade routes, sharing the space with yachts, fishing boats, sailboats and waverunners. With unusually warm weather of 70 degrees Farenheit, there were many walkers and bicyclists on the trails. However, I was able to find adequate seclusion to capture some nice shots, a few of which I am particularly proud. For me, as I have shared before, this is a time of exercise and spiritual meditation, reflecting on the wonders of God’s creation in healthy ways.
