Taken fall 2018, but still one of my favorites. From Columbia Bottom Conservation area, on one of the trails in the northeast part of the area. A cold and grey November day, with the feel of winter in the air... I went back to this area not long ago, on an equally cold and grey November day, but couldn't top this image. The nice paved trail is mostly gone, from flooding in May-July 2019, but there's still a clear path between short stretches of asphalt. 2 1/2 years later, I wonder if they've accepted that the Rivers will always win out...
