A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

Scenes from the Clark and Periwinkle trails

Conditions on Albany’s trails range from nice and picked up to messy, as my bike rides along the Dave Clark Path and the Periwinkle Bikepath showed this past week.

What you see on the Perwinkle Bikepath
