When I was on my walk today, I walked downtown, to Anderson Park, by the river, and to Vernonia Lake. Colin Tierney make very nice signs explaining the flora and fauna along the river and around the lake as an Eagle Scout project. The signs along the river are still in OK, but the signs along the lake are destroyed. Why would anyone destroy his work, as well as destroying the enjoyment for people that visit the lake? It really makes you wonder. This is a sign along the river telling about the salmon and the salmon berry.

These are two of the destroyed signs.

While I was on my walk I did see a little of nature.

Mr. Squirrel has a fir cone and is eating his lunch. Sorry that I disturbed you, little guy.

The ducks on the lake.

It's distrubing to see that kind of destruction. Such a waste all the way around.
Loved your pics. It inspires me to go for a walk.

Destruction like that is disturbing, and such a waste to all involved.
Loved you walk pics. Inspires me to get out there and walk, too.
