A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Monday you may have to alter your route

Written August 1st, 2020 by Hasso Hering

If you’re a regular on Albany’s Cox Creek Path, you may have already seen this sign. If not but are planning to go that way on Monday, note that the trail will be closed.

There are two of those signs, one at each end of the path. This one is on Salem Avenue.

I saw the signs this afternoon, and being that it’s Saturday, I couldn’t find anyone to ask what the “equipment” will be used for and why the path has to be closed.

Maybe there will be a crew working on the weeds that have been closing in on sections of this trail. Maybe it’s something else. Either way, take another route on your Monday walk, ride or run.

While I took the photo above, I could not pass up sampling  the blackberries that grow at the corner in great numbers. Made it worth the stop. (hh)

The berries are ripening where the Cox Creek Path meets Salem Avenue, and some are ready to enjoy.

One response to “Monday you may have to alter your route”

  1. Gordon L. Shadle says:

    There are tiny white worms in those berries – Drosophila suzukii.

    No need to gag, however. The worms are a source of protein and safe to eat.
