Dog-Walking Paradise

Just off I-84 in Oregon, I've driven past this fence-edged field many times and seen cars parked along the side of the road and people walking in the field with their dogs.  I finally made time to stop here on the way back from a Hood River trip, and my dog Clover was very happy that I did. It's a wonderful series of trails through the Sandy River Delta that are completely dog friendly, as in dog off your leash, running around greeting and playing with other dogs.  In short, a dog-walking paradise!  From now on I will make time to stop here for a walk with Clover every time I'm heading back from the gorge.

Nice B&W shot! I smiled to imagine the scenes of dogs expressing their joy with their whole body without leash.
