    Really enjoyed the hike - would not have known about the purple loosestrife otherwise-thanks so much for sharing. i.e. Bella really enjoyed herself - thankyou for having dogs as well.

    It was tough but good and I know my limits better.

      I enjoyed it but like you felt like a long 2 1/2 miles but then again I am totally out of shape so very glad I made myself go. Hope to see everyone again. Nice to be outside and hope to make some friends outside of work!

    Sorry about the confusion as to meeting location. Turn north off Tacoma on 7th and go to the end of 7th. There is a parking lot right there. That's where we're meeting. If you get lost, call[masked]

    Meet at the parking lot at the north end of Sellwood Park at SE 7th Avenue and SE Sellwood Boulevard

      oops - left is relative... you turn NORTH on 6th.

      August 10, 2013

    • Su

      Diana, I don't think those directions will get you there. Turn north off Tacoma on 7th and go to the end of 7th. There is a parking lot right there. That's where we're meeting.

    Due to the change in venue I'm unable to attend. I budgeted my time to walk to the first venue and just found out the change posted last night..

    August 10, 2013

    • Su

      I am sorry Julie. The 2 locations are so close together I didn't think it would cause problems. Just wanted to find parking.

    August 9, 2013

    • Su

      The event says 10-12. That's what it is.

      August 9, 2013

    • Snow K.

      I saw something that said 1-3 but guess it was for a different event!

    If you're allergic to poison oak be mindful in this area.

    I am a retired widow and new to Portland after living on Vancouver Island, Canada for 20 years with my husband of 39 years. I am trying to make a new life for myself here and enjoy walking and nature.
