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.

Judging by this photo you learn fast.

Excellent capture.

Danford's an unusual name, but given that it's a century and a half old, that might be expected.

I would love to have heard the rushing water.
