A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

A riverfront update: Look at that log pile

Written January 21st, 2023 by Hasso Hering

As you would expect, the pile of trash, logs and smaller bits of driftwood under the Albany railroad bridge on the Willamette River is getting bigger this winter.


A day’s report: High water and sunshine

If anyone had plans for a Mother’s Day picnic at this shelter in Albany’s Bryant Park, well, those plans had to be changed.


Park closed on a sunny, dry day

Written March 3rd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

The weather turned fine on Saturday, but automobile access to Albany’s Bryant Park remained closed. That didn’t keep people from using the park for disc golf, time on the playground, or just walking around. They just left their cars outside the entrance, and outside the exit too.


No walking on the river, please

Or biking either. The parks department put up barriers at Albany’s Bowman Park, just in case anybody was tempted to venture into the Willamette River to reach the floating dock out there.


It was just a trickle

The sign on Bryant Way was right on Christmas Eve, but just barely.


Bike route still blocked? Nope

(Please find the update below). This is getting a little old. I keep thinking that the “Road Closed” signs on both ends of Bryant Drive and Bryant Way outside of Albany may be outdated. But no, they’re not.


Road’s not dry, yet

Written February 19th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

As you can see, Bryant Way outside of Albany was still closed on Wednesday afternoon. But the flooding covered only one section of the road instead of two on Monday.
