Fall foliage and
the Salmon River
In autumn 1998 Andrew and I
went to the Mt. Hood National
Forest and to a trail I had been
on before that follows the
Salmon River.  We hiked in only
a few miles and found a spot
along the river to set up camp.  
It rained a bit but never too
hard.  After the sun set we
hiked further up the trail and
found glowing foxfire, or
bioluminescent fungi, on the
forest floor.

bridge across a
tributary of the
