Nature in an Urban Environment


I enjoy exploring the urban woods and surrounding areas near home.

Colorful flowers, especially wildflowers, butterflies and songbirds are especially welcome to be seen.

In the midst of summer though, the pickings become slim. Portland traditionally receives very little rainfall in July and August.

But, there’s always something that catches my eye.
