Blog Your Blessing Sunday #38
If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther
Today my blessings are the paved trails I have the opportunity to walk on here in Vancouver. I haven't been to Klineline Pond and Salmon Creek Greenway for awhile because of a detour the bus had to make when the road going over Salmon Creek needed major repairs and was closed. Now I have to take two buses to get there and walk about three blocks before I spot the waterfall that always told me (in the past) we were there.
When you see this waterfall on Highway 99, you know you have arrived. . . Klineline Pond is just across the road and Salmon Creek Greenway is the walking trail in front of it.
Klineline water park. . .
Canadian Geese. . .
Mallard ducks. . .
Water sprays to cool you off . . .
Klineline pond for swimming, fishing and enjoying . . .
Mile markers beginning just outside Klineline water park. . .
Beautiful blossoms. . .
The berries are almost ripe. . .
Beautiful scenery . . .
Tall trees. . .
Pretty weeds. . .
Glimmer of sunlight OVER the bridge. . .
More beautiful blossoms. . .
A bench to rest and watch the river. . .
Straight paths . . .
Flowers . . .
Contrasting scenery . . .
Curved paths . . .
Wild daisies. . .
Flowers. . .
More flowering bushes -- these reminded me of grapes growing. . .
More flowers. . .
Long shadows looking back on a path that's almost complete . . .
Berries . . .
The end is in sight -- just up that hill. It's only been three miles and has taken me an hour and 15 minutes because I was in no hurry and besides the exercise, more photos were my ulterior motive anyway.
The sign that officially ends -- or starts -- the Salmon Creek Greenway. Time to catch a bus home!
