Sauvie Island (OR) – 2013

As the waters of the Columbia and Willamette rivers flow from their confluence towards the Pacific Ocean, they encircle a bucolic piece of farm and park land call Sauvie Island.  It’s about a 60 minute ride from downtown portland, but feels like a world away.

On the far side of the island sits Collin’s Beach.  If you’re lucky, you may find a grafitti-covered, abandoned concrete boat hidden among the trees there.  It was built and used by the father of my friend Jon, which is how I knew where to look for it.  Keep in mind that this stretch is “clothing optional”, so be careful where you point your camera.  Perhaps this would be a good way to follow up the annual Portland Naked Bike Ride.
