Oswego Spring Study

It can`t be more than a half mile from the dam holding back the lake to it`s finish at the Willamette River, yet Oswego Creek`s entire brief stretch is unbelievably gorgeous. There is a wealth of material to work from there.
To install a new sewer system the city has drained 70% of the lake this winter. When the draw down was happening kayakers were running the rapids where John is standing in the photo. I was worried that my new discovery had been destroyed by the force of the water. Needlessly. Just a month later we were back there and it was as lush as ever.
