Hyland Forest Park – Mostly

May 28-29, 2020

Yesterday I walked a stretch of the Fanno Creek Trail that I haven’t visited recently. I only had my iPhone with me but took a couple of pictures of a beautiful meadow on the north end of Dirksen Nature Park just south of Tigard Street.

This morning I I the mile and a half through the neighborhoods up to Hyland Forest Park to wander through my happy place. It is so quiet and peaceful in there. I’ve posted about my walks here a few times. Places are starting to open up but we still can’t really get out to the hiking spots like we had planned this past winter.

it’s a small park – about 30 acres – but there are plenty of trails.

I decided to take my Sony a6600 instead of just depending on my iPhone for pictures.

I love how the sun peeks through the tree in places to splash light across the foliage.

The walk around the perimeter is about one mile. After that I headed up but stopped to grab a couple of pictures of the beautiful local gardens.
