Fanno Creek flows through Washington, Clackamas, and Washington counties. There is a trail alongside most of the creek; it comes within a mile of our house and Carla and I have walked on a few stretches of it. We’ve never walked north of Hall Blvd because of all the traffic. A few months ago the Tualatin Parks and Recreation District along with the City of Beaverton put a pedestrian crossing across Hall. I thought it was high time to get out along that stretch of the creek. I wasn’t gone long because it started raining buckets.
