Just southeast of Portland, Oregon you’ll find the smallish town of Oregon City. The “upper” part of the city, is perched on an ancient basalt cliff and prone to landslides. This became obvious when I went on this delightful hike where the path had steep drops in a number of places. Oregon City is an interesting place with many nice parks, a historic old town dotted with small antique shops, great restaurants and the beautiful McLoughlin Promenade, a walking path above the Willamette River. Take 7th Street and continue on down Molalla Avenue from here and you’ll end up on “top of the hill”, where the Clackamas Community College is located.
I love going for long exploration walks with my camera on this campus.
This sculpture garden is one of my favorite stops whenever I visit!
Take a seat and enjoy the fascinating variety of art in this Sculpture Garden
tucked into a towering grove of majestic Douglas firs.
Chuck Clemans was a true Pacific North-Westerner!
He loved the outdoors, art and was also an avid advocate for education on all levels.
Mr. Clemans died in 2011.
