Sauvie Island; a Step Back in Time
Sauvie Island; a Step Back in Time | KiKi Canniff

For centuries visitors have flocked to Sauvie Island; a 24,000 acre rural paradise situated where the Willamette and Columbia Rivers meet.Located just 12 miles north of Portland, today's visitors are drawn by the 13,000 acre Sauvie Island Wildlife Management Area's flat hiking trails, wide sandy beaches, plentiful waterfowl and rural charm. But, for visitors who know where to look, you can explore the island's rich history as well; one that includes a wealthy tribe of Native American residents, visits by famous explorers, the roots of Oregon's statehood, and some pretty amazing pioneer families.Early explorers wrote about Sauvie Island's friendly native population, its plentiful but noisy waterfowl, and natural beauty in their journals. The waterfowl are still plentiful and the natural beauty relatively unchanged.Pioneer businessmen came west to build a town on the island and harvest its natural resources, scientists came to sketch and catalog its wild plants, and pioneer settlers were attracted by the fertile soil. This book will help you to discover all of Sauvie Island's recreational opportunities. It shows you where to hike, picnic, sunbathe, swim, hunt and fish, as well as where to find the island's historic sites, how to explore the island by boat, and where you'll find island cafes and snacks, u-pick crops, and annual events.

@Chelleo My profile pic is from almost 3 years ago now...it was taken at one of the lovely farms on Sauvie Island (see tagged book), in the shop where you can buy veggies etc that you haven't picked. 😆 (We were there picking flowers for my friend's wedding the next day!) I was very excited to find a cabbage larger than my head. #litsyavatar

Ddzmini That‘s a big cabbage 😳 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @Ddzmini I know, right? Too bad I don't like sauerkraut. I think that's specifically what that cabbage was bred for. 2y
Ddzmini Or coleslaw 😝 2y

readordierachel I always thought you were holding a globe. A cabbage is even better! 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @ReadOrDieRachel Oh, lol, I never even thought about what ppl would think it was! I think it was just my Facebook profile pic when I joined Litsy, so it was an automatic choice. 2y
SandyW Fun. I have a picture of a giant red cabbage somewhere, but I don't think it's close to that size. 2y

MinDea @Tiffy_Reads did she respond to your email? She is in our swap and haven't heard from her at all. Looks like she hasn't been on for a month and she used to be very active. Wonder if something is wrong..... @TricksyTails 2y
