The Springwater Corridor after the Rain
The Springwater Corridor trail is a popular trail for cyclists, runners, walkers, and dogs. It’s paved, but that doesn’t mean it’s not without its beauty. Since I moved recently, access to the trail is even closer. It’s just a few minutes away from my digs, so it was an easy choice when there was break in the weather. Last Saturday, rains last weekend pounded the Portland area, and there was minor flooding that lasted for a day. On Sunday, Johnson Creek, which runs parallel to the trail for miles of its length, was swollen and brown.
I’d walked and ridden my bike on the trail many times before. This time, as I avoided the many cyclists, I noticed how muddy Johnson Creek was. No surprise given the rains of the day before.
Compare the water in this last shot to a post from early in 2014. Nature is always going through cycles, but sometimes it is more impressive than others.
