where the two rivers meet
Leila, River, and I spent a bit of our afternoon at Kelley Point, where the two rivers meet on the north point of Portland. With the Willamette to the west and the Columbia to the north, it is a sweet sight to experience. It is also surrounded by industrial sites — on one hand, it could be thought of as lessening the natural world experience, but on the other, it is just a reminder that we need to keep balance and remember how both landscapes are important to our lives. I actually really enjoyed seeing the two landscapes meet, alongside such a powerful river confluence.
