Tryon Creek State Natural Area

Tryon Creek was a short walk away from my friend's house, so I got into the habit of walking there daily while I was in that area of Portland. It's a green (all of the green, every one you can imagine, and incredibly vibrant), magical place, quiet during the week, and filled with a few huffing and puffing trail runners on the weekend. I spent my time on just one trail since there was an active slide on the other option, but it was nice to see the same space over and over again, watching the slow progress of Spring in the PNW.
