If you know anything at all about Oregon, you know that the state is ruled by ducks and beavers. Pick a side and proudly wear your colors. Nothing else matters.
Today we had an hour of zero precipitation. A totally novel concept.
We made our way up to the Tualatin River Wildlife Refuge. Most of the refuge is still closed for the season, but the walk we took was beautiful.
This pond was covered in tiny red flowers. I’m guessing they must be some form of algae.
From the looks of this tree, the beavers have been busy and the ducks are just hanging out, stretching after their nap.
