Sauvie Island

On a hazy day (wildfire smoke) in September we drove to Sauvie Island, stopping at the Wapato Greenway. It’s always an interesting hike, going around marshy, wildlife-rich Virginia Lake.

My Favorite Model

In the summer the lake mostly dries up and turns into a large grassy meadow.

A side trail visits Multnomah Channel where anglers try their luck in the Columbia River backwater.

A nice morning indeed.
