We live just a few blocks from Reed College, which maintains a 28-acre nature preserve on the campus grounds. This canyon contains the watershed of Crystal Springs, a waterway that flows into Johnson Creek and eventually into the Willamette River (that’s where I go swimming a lot, you know). Well, you also know Mom’s been bored with where we’ve gone lately, which doesn’t bother me a bit! It means more adventures for little ol’ Sage.
So, off we went. Down into the canyon. Of course, Mom forgot her camera, so the picture quality is totally dependent on her phone. (including any ‘red-eye’…I’m not really a zombie 🙂 )Reed Lake is home to lots of different critters (beaver, otter and a coyote or two) but all we saw were a few ducks.
And a pesky squirrel
We saw lots of foliage. Mom tasted the red berries, but she said they were tasteless.
Pee Ess: There is no fur-wetting here. Mom keeps me on a leash, but that’s OK. I sometimes like to take that kind of walk with Mom.
