Photoblog: Life Always Finds a Way

As summer winds down and green begins to give way to brown, I can feel the change of seasons in the air. All of the activity, growth and fullness of the summer is starting to give way to the introspective nature of fall. We’ve had a pretty dry and hot summer this year here in Oregon and I’ve been seeing it in the trees, the plants and the soil. Even though things seem dry, it’s still lush. I don’t think the Pacific Northwest knows how to be any other way BUT lush. I took some photos today of my walk through Tualatin Hills Nature Park and share them here. As I walked through the park, it was easy to feel the dryness but even so, I still saw flowers blooming. It reminded me of Jeff Goldbume’s line from Jurassic Park - “Life always finds a way.”
