Beautiful, beautiful river

Enjoyed the walking trails along side this gorgeous body of water. We could have spent all day here enjoying the shear beauty of this wonderful river.

I went floating down the Willamette with about 6 classmates. The majority of the river was clean and pretty shallow. There wasn't a lot of current neat the EWEB building so we had to paddle A LOT. Still it was a fun thing to do on a hot day in Eugene.

Our family recently floated about 5 miles ending up at Harrisburg. It was a hot day and it was nice on the water. Just pull up on a gravel bar and cool down whenever you want. There are spots where the wind makes floating a challenge. In other words you do have to paddle.

There is a nice walk or park path along the river, walk into a rose garden, walk across the foot path to visit an enclosed mall. Nicely done recreation area.

Hey, it is pretty - it winds - it is made of water. It flows. it has banks. What's not to like? Really, how would you possible give a river a bad review?

There is a 3-4 mile path along the river between Autzen Stadium and campus which is scenic and passes by a dog park and a duck park/pond. It was fun to watch the animals in the spring sunshine and just be out doors.

Eugene has two major Rivers running through it, make sure you find yourself on one either rafting or in an inner tube, its a great way to relax and soak up some sun.
