I enjoy exploring the urban woods and surrounding areas near home.
In late October the transition to winter has begun. Red, yellow and orange maple leaves dancing in a light breeze, falling from their trees.
It’s one of my favorite times of the year.
Cottontail Rabbit and Gray Squirrel
Wine and Sturgeon
When the weather is still nice, short trips make for fine outings. A tasting flight at a world-class winery and watching sturgeon at the Tanner Creek Hatchery in the Columbia River Gorge are two favorites.
