The theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge this week from Amy is A River Runs Through It. She said the theme title for this week is borrowed from “A River Runs Through it” by Norman Maclean

Here are the photos from my travels.

Cee’s Which Way Challenge – Kelley Point Park, Portland, OR

Kelley Poitnr Pk 2017.05.13a

On May 13, 2017 Mercy and Will took my husband and I to Kelley Point Park in Portland, Oregon. The park is full of sky reaching trees and green bushes. It was right after the rain. The ground was still wet. We could smell the fresh green in the air. The park was along two rivers – Willamette River and Columbia River.

During Lewis and Clark expedition, they ascended Columbia River in 1805, and descended in 1806, but missed the mouth of Willamette River. The Native Americans had been in this areas around 1850. Since 1900, Willamette River became a significant river. Rich with sediments, deposited by flooding and rainfall on the western side of the Cascades, the Willamette Valley is one of the most fertile agricultural regions in North America,

The middle group of trees in the last photo is the point where Willamette River meets Columbia River.
