A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Another memory of this April flood

Written April 12th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

By now we’ve probably all had our fill of high-water photos. So here’s what should be the last installment on this site, a glimpse of navigation on Albany’s Bryant Park.


Park’s open, so let’s ride through it

Written March 7th, 2019 by Hasso Hering

[youtube video=”KHIXjgXkSSo”] This should be the last mention of Bryant Park on this site for a while, don’t you think? But since the park’s locked gates were an item on Sunday and Tuesday, it’s only fair to report that the gates are open again now.

Written April 28th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Idle thoughts: We’re lacking lakes

Written February 13th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

There’s no news here, just an observation: Wouldn’t it be nice if the seasonal wintertime flooding of Albany’s Bryant Park was a permanent thing and people could enjoy something called Bryant Lake all year long?
