The start of the Tualatin River Greenway.
Throughout the walk there were many signs about the history of the area.
Resting on one of the many benches/outlooks over the Tualatin River.
Casting of bones were found throughout the walk. This was from a Mastadon.
A HUGE etching of a sabertooth salmon. (They can grow to be 8-10 feet)
Jaw bone casting. (That is Pop's shadow)

Diane and Mike's Mom taking a break.
A 'Glacial Erratic' -- rocks that traveled long distances carried by glacial ice.
Bison Skull casting.
"Wildlife Tree" - trees that are not cut down because they are homes to animals.
The Tualatin River Greenway goes under I-5.
Mike's parents walking along the greenway.
I liked the contrast in color even though one pine tree is dead.
We walked from the library to the end of the map at bottom. (In this photo...we are in the middle)
Stopping to read the signs along the way.
A part of history... from dirt roads to plank roads.
Impressions in the concrete of what the old plank road would have looked like.
Another "Wildlife Tree", but wanted you to notice the houses along the river too.
Part of the walkway was made out of deck material instead of concrete.
At the end of the walkway..... until they acquire the land beyond, so they can connect this to the Brown's Ferry Park walkway.
A boat house.
Relaxing on one of the benches.
