Golden Light on Westmoreland Park

Golden light on the dry world of Westmoreland Park

After work the other day, I met my wife and took a stroll in Portland’s Westmoreland Park.  It has evolved a bit in recent years, with more paths and cultivation of gardens interspersed with ball fields and duck ponds.  We discovered a long curving boardwalk and inspected a marshy area that was drying up.  Oregon has finally received some rain, but we are still way behind in annual precipitation.  Thankfully, the trees, shrubs, and grasses remain lovely.  We consider ourselves lucky to have such a wonderful park close to home.
