The indian plum and red flowering currant are in bloom or just beginning. It has only been a few days since the Watershed Wide event and already a shopping cart with items such as bike parts, personal items and backpacks was left turned and tossed out just before the boardwalk. I sent a photo with the information to the rangers. I made my way beyond the boardwalk to the spot where the fence always gets kicked down and very cautiously walked though that area since it’s been plagued with campers off and on. Happy to report there was only one camp way to the west in an area where we spread mulch a few years back (this I reported to pdxreporter along with a photo). There was minimal trash in one area (3 empty vodka bottles – bloody mary time!) which I removed and took to the trash can at the Springwater.
