Finally, a sunny day. A good time for a five-mile hike in the nearby Tualatin Hills Nature Park.
The fresh earthy smells of the sun-warmed soil were a delight to the senses. And, with its remarkably diverse habitat of wetlands, forests, ponds and streams, there is always a small bird or squirrel to be seen.
The trails were in great shape and led to many interesting viewing areas.
Walking back to my car I couldn’t help but think that Spring is near.
