Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living, after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away.
Wild orchids, lilies, song birds, raptors, a beautiful spring day – – – it would take more than wild horses to drag me away.
At times I’m truly amazed at the diversity of beauty in the Portland area. In mid-April my destination was the eastern foothills of the Coastal Mountains. A 14-mile trail (1,450 feet of cumulative elevation gain) travels around Henry Hagg Lake, the impoundment behind Scoggins Valley Dam.
There are five creeks flowing into the 2 1/2 mile long reservoir, providing outstanding habitat for song birds, wildflowers and butterflies. What a pleasant way to spend a sunny six hours of exercise and fun.
