I think the theme of our March hike was SPRING! We headed out on March 1st, and yet so many plants and trees were flowering, including the Japanese Cherry Blossoms! For those keeping track at home, spring doesn’t officially kick off until March 19th.
If you ever venture to Portland (or maybe you live in the area), you must visit Sauvie Island. Let’s be real, most folks only migrate to the island during the fall festive season to pick up their pumpkins and do all things related to Pumpkin Spice Lattes. We are die-hard’s for “The Pumpkin Patch,” and others prefer different farms. BUT did you know the island is SO much bigger than the pumpkin patch farms and there’s an entire wildlife refuge on the northern side? More than that, did you know there is a lighthouse out there?
