The Garden was filled with tourists -- and photographers -- this afternoon... I assume that most were there for the beginning of the Garden's short-lived fall color spectacular. I went to one of the "cliche trees" (as one of my photog friend calls it) and was joined there by three young women I assumed were visitors from Japan. We watched the sun play in the leaves for a minute or so when one girl turned to her companions and said, in prefect American English: "Amy Schumer is pregnant."

The NW has been under a dome of summery high pressure for weeks, but some recent misty mornings have been refreshing. #portland #neportland #columbiariverslough #autumn2018 #leaves #naturepreserve #pixelxl

Skip takes a personal interest as UPS assembles a triple-trailer rig this morning. on our daily walk. Something new for the big guy. He took it all in stride. #portland #neportland #australianshepherd #aussie #counterconditioning #skipthedog #autumn2018 #beautifulday

The lower portion of the Little Spokane River. When I was a kid in Spokane we used to spend summer days here floating on inner tubes, looking for sunbathing turtles, rattlesnakes and whatnot. Back then the entire river and surrounding area was privately owned and we always played cat and mouse with land owners. Today it is part of the huge Little Spokane River Natural Area, preserved for all to enjoy. Even today, when I think of the most beautiful, peaceful place on earth I think of this place. Slow cold water, the loud sound of the wind in the ponderosas and the warm sun. #spokane #littlespokanerivernaturalarea #autumn2018 #pixelxl

At my 50th reunion they suggested that I might like one of the break-out discussion groups... you know, based on my track record. #spokane #streetscene
