The Paper Demon’s wonderful partner took the day off of work, so we spent the day at the river.

The Willamette River

‘The river’ is the Willamette River, which runs right through Eugene.  We took a walk through the Whilamut Natural Area (named for a Kalapuya word meaning “where the water ripples and runs fast.” )   And so it does.

With the temps in the 90s, I couldn’t keep my feet out of the cold crisp water!

Feet in the Willamette River

I love Eugene.
