Alder Springs Trail

View from Alder Springs Trail near Bend, Oregon

I thought this stream was called Alder Springs Creek, given the name of the trail, but I think it’s actually called Whychus Creek. This is a very nice hike, especially on a day less than 95 degrees (which was the temperature on the day we did it), but it’s a pain to get to as the road is not good, and Google maps will lead you astray.

Happy birthday, Mike Scheidt!

Irvington Neighborhood on a Snowy Morning

Portland, Oregon (February 2019)

The Irvington neighborhood is located in the northeast section of Portland, Oregon. The neighborhood streets were laid out in 1887, and residential lots began selling in 1891. An early example of a streetcar suburb, Irvington contains the largest, most diverse, and intact collections of Queen Anne, Arts and Crafts, and Colonial Revival style residences in the City of Portland as well as the State of Oregon. In 2010, Irvington was designated an historic district and added to the National Register of Historic Places.

2020 is the “Year of the Rat”. Also, Steve Bannon was arrested and charged with fraud today. Coincidence?
