It is intriguing how life sometimes takes an unexpected turn. Last week my wife was sick, so I had to drive my daughter to her weekly homeschool co-op class. I had about an hour and a half to kill, so I de­cid­ed to drive around and explore a near­by part of Linn County. I headed north on Oregon Route 226 and then east on Fish Hatchery Road.

About six miles down that road I came to Larwood Wayside Park, between Scio and Lacomb, about 18 miles east of Al­ba­ny (where I live). This five-​acre county park is situated where the Roaring River empties into Crabtree Creek. Spanning the creek is the lovely covered Larwood Bridge, built in 1939.

Fortunately there was a break in the rain during my brief fifteen-​minute visit, so I was able to indulge in some pho­tog­ra­phy. I took about 30 pictures from many different angles. The best 12 — including a twelve-​photo panorama — are now avail­able for viewing in this album. It is amazing how my wife’s sickness turned into a pho­to­graph­ic blessing!
The photos in this album were taken with the  Olympus OM-D E-M5  camera.
