Mulkey Creek

farmland before the start of the Mulkey Creek trailhead
Being somewhat car-less lately has forced me to get out and explore the trails and bike-able country roads in and around the Corvallis area.  Forced may actually be an overstatement as the area is lovely to the extreme, particularly in the springtime.
