Anna: This afternoon, we grabbed our cameras, tripod and monopod and headed out for an afternoon walk in the River Valley. (More photos here.) We used to do this walk several times a week when we first moved out here, but stopped when the snow got too deep. We just never really got back to it on a regular basis, so it felt good to do it again. The walk from where we head down to the river by our place, then back up to street level downtown, is something around 3 miles. Then, after a stop for drinks and a treat downtown, we found we'd missed our bus and just walked home rather than wait for the next one.
As we near the heart of the downtown area, the park and paths become far more elobarate and divergant. One section of pathway becomes a series of switchbacks, bordered by a profusion of roses on both sides. I had a field day with the macro lens. LOL This is one of my favorites.
