Vancouver, USA Summer Spots (Walk #2)

As stated in my last post, I am participating in a local summer “challenge” that aims to get folks out and about to nearby parks, nature trails and other fun outdoor locations. I described my first outing of the challenge here.

My second walking adventure took me to:

Evergreen Trail at Columbia Springs

The Evergreen Trail starts at the Columbia Springs Environmental Education Center in Vancouver, WA. The center is a nonprofit that teaches folks about stewardship and environmental science. There is also an active fish hatchery on site that raises steelhead, rainbow trout and chum salmon.

Chules and I made our way along trails flanked by native and nonnative flora. It all smelled wonderful to Chules.

There are a number of paths to choose from, all of them relatively short and easy to walk.

We met some very friendly ducks who apparently thought we’d be easy marks for snagging a snack. They lost interest and swam away as soon as they realized we were snackless.

All in all, Columbia Springs made for a nice morning adventure, and I got another location checked off my list.

Two down, 13 to go!
