There’s a row of trees on Shaff Rd., across from Bi-Mart. These are the trunks of those trees. Those trees are these. Also, I just found a quarter on my desk. This has nothing to do with the quarter… just thought I’d share my good fortune.
Guest photographer Maryann Nielson captured these colorful autumn oak tree leaves at Pioneer Park. Thanks, Maryann!
Please note: I have multiple guest photographer submissions waiting in the wings, and I will get to all of them as time allows. Right now, I’m posting autumn-oriented stuff, since it’s so colorful out there right now. Thanks!
This bit of water runs under Ida St. I didn’t know until yesterday it is owned by Norpac Cannery, which resides behind these trees and across a field (which is also owned by the cannery). A bunch of folks worked to get that green stuff out of the water, but it’s working its way back in. That’s too bad, because I don’t think the mallard ducks which hung that spot care for it much, since they don’t hang around that often anymore.
Thanks to the neighbor I met yesterday for providing me with the info above. Much appreciated. I hope I got it all right.
The Jordan Bridge, my favorite Stayton landmark, was looking rather pretty a few days ago at Pioneer Park. The colorful autumn leaves did a nice job of framing the two bridges, which made it easy for me to just stand there and take the picture.
I went by Pioneer Park yesterday to take more autumn leaves photos, and happened upon Kelly Schreiber, from the Stayton-Sublimity Chamber Of Commerce, and her husband installing more disc golf goals in the park. When everything is completed, there will be nine goals at Pioneer park, and nine more at Church Park in nearby Sublimity. Combined, they make for a full circuit.
Disc golf certainly seems to be popular. When I was there about a week ago, three groups were playing, and today another group was out there.
Thanks to Kelly and her husband for letting me photograph them.
