Eugene (part 1)…

1 Comment

We met up with my niece Katura for a tour of a wetlands area in west Eugene. It is in amongst an industrial area and a busy commercial street but still provides a busy habitat for nature and humans to enjoy. Watching the sun set surrounded by flitting goldfinches is my idea of a good time!

This flower of the camas plant was a theme throughout our time in Eugene.

Random plants all around.

The next morning bright and early we were off to see the arboretum where Katura works.

We wandered through the beautiful area wishing we hadn’t missed their wildflower festival a few weeks ago, but thankful there were still some around. Some views from our wanderings.

One thought on “Eugene (part 1)…

  1. Beautiful, Lois! Did you visit the covered bridge across the river?
    Many ;years ago, I spent time with friends who lived at the river’s side, within view of the bridge, and the little island where a new of family of ducks (parents and the ducklings) ventured over to the shore..
