Eastward bound

Walked east on the Springwater Corridor trail today. I needed some stuff, and decided to see if the trail ran all the way out to the Fred Meyer store at SE Johnson Creek and 82nd. It did.

Total round trip, I’m guessing, was about 7 miles. Not a lot of great scenery as it goes through the Brentwood-Darlington area along Johnson Creek Blvd., which is mostly light industrial. But the trail itself is a nice hike, mostly straight and if there’s a grade it’s very gentle. It runs past a park, the Tideman Johnson Nature Park. Apparently, if you continue east beyond 82nd, there’s a botanical garden before you get to Gresham. Someday I’ll head out farther.
