HASSO HERING

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.


The trouble with people: the mess they leave

That bundle of crumpled black plastic you see in my left fist is a dozen or more dog waste bags the Albany Parks Department was kind enough to supply and somebody then threw away or carelessly dropped on the Cox Creek Path.


Discovering Albany: the Cox Creek Path

From the Cox Creek Path, you don’t see the creek for which it is named, especially not late in the spring when the vegetation runs wild.

This was the Cox Creek Path railroad underpass on Thursday afternoon, and as you can see, the walls have once again been repainted to look clean. This spot on the Albany park system is tagged so often that I think it would be a promising candidate for camera surveillance.

On Cox Creek, reminders of a storm

Written October 23rd, 2016 by Hasso Hering

The weather system that raked western Oregon last weekend is mostly forgotten, and it wasn’t as much of a storm as had been feared, but you still see reminders of it if you ride your bike along Albany’s Cox Creek Path.
