A pleasant five-mile hike along the Willamette River on a beautiful early Summer day. And, an interesting visit to Oregon history.

The Champoeg Park area is an enjoyable place to visit anytime of the year, but it’s always nice when the wildflowers are blooming.

There is something a little magical about the Willamette Valley.
