Another sight/site seen on Mother's Day.
Trying to learn more about the settings on my camera, with the help of Leland who already knows and understands and remembers way more than I do. At this point on the walk, Balch Creek moves quickly alongside Lower Macleay Park Trail. I read this online about the creek's name: Danford Balch, after whom the creek is named, settled a land claim along the creek in the mid-19th century. After murdering his son-in-law, he became the first person legally hanged in Oregon.
