A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Cleaned up for now; surveillance next?

Written May 17th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

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.


No big deal: Noted on the riverfront

Written May 7th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Some days there is nothing to see on my riverfront beat. But sometimes there is, even if it’s nothing big. Three items caught my attention Monday afternoon.


The risk is pretty small; however …

Written October 29th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

In the Age of the Lawsuit, maybe this was the inevitable result of a couple of trees on Albany’s Cox Creek coming down in a windstorm two weekends ago. On Saturday these signs had appeared at the western entrance of the Cox Creek Path.


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.


The day this snake lucked out

Written July 1st, 2016 by Hasso Hering

There’s an online fact sheet put out by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife titled “Living With Snakes.” This fat little serpent, however, might benefit from something called “Living With Bicyclists.” Stretched out across the warm concrete of the Cox Creek Path on Friday, it was taking quite a chance. But it lucked out. I saw it in time and veered around it.


No place to be in a storm

You might want to bring a chainsaw when riding on Albany’s Cox Creek path in winter. Just kidding. It’s not that often that the path is blocked by a fallen tree.


Railroad safety on Cox Creek Path

Written January 18th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

This is something you don’t see all that often: Flaggers keeping an eye on traffic where Albany’s Cox Creek Path ducks under the Union Pacific mainline.
