The Salmonberry River

Yours truly

Well, I promised more photography on this blog, so here it is. These photos are a couple of years old and I’m far from a professional photographer. This is a truly remarkable hike out in the coast range of Oregon (yes, I live in Oregon–don’t stalk me :p). The Salmonberry is a tributary of the Nahalem river. A railroad ran along its course that used to carry logs and passengers to Tillamook, and it used to get a little salmon run every year. A few years ago, a flood wiped out the railroad. Since the cost of repair was deemed too great, the state let it lapse. As you can see, nature has started to reclaim the area in a rather beautiful way 🙂

  1. Very good. I’ve hiked a good bit of the Appalachian Trail, including the entire length of Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. I don’t expect to finish the entire length, but it’s been a great experience so far.
