Oaks Bottom

A little down south and up river, is a patch of wilderness in the city. A marsh fills the middle, with all varieties of birds congregating along the edges among the rushes. A paved bike trail skirts along the river side while a gravel and dirt path meanders through the narrow band of forest between marsh and residential yards.

Here’s some pictures we took while walking through the park.

At the south end of the park is a ball field with picnic tables and such. It was a good place to let the dog run around, and obviously it turned out to be a good place for Seth to catch a nap.

  1. We have the slack line set up so Marin can practice her trapeze work while visiting us. Oh, and Seth sleeping reminds me of your dad sleeping just about anywhere he paused to slow down.
