Oregon's Willamette River, 187 miles in length, runs north through the Willamette Valley. We often stop at this park in Oregon City where the Clackamas and Willamette rivers meet (hence the clever park name of "Clackamette"), drawing fishermen/women from all over in the spring and fall. During the summer, though, the river belongs to picnics, swimming, boaters, rafters, thrill seekers, sun lovers and heat escapers.
On this day, who could resist the draw of the river reflecting the lowering sun, the glorylight spilling from the clouds ... I couldn't!
