Sauvie Island

On a beautiful day in early December we drove to Sauvie Island, stopping at the Virginia Lake Trailhead.

It’s always an interesting hike, going around marshy, wildlife-rich Virginia Lake.

Multnomah Channel

By autumn, the lake 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.

There are always a good variety of birds to see.

A fun morning indeed.
