The delta of the Sandy proves ideal for a stroll on a cool fall day. Clouds part and if it weren’t for the bare branches of cottonwoods (Populus trichocarpa), ash, (Fraxinus latifolia), and willow (salix spp.) you’d not guess about the thick wool sweater I wear and the rain gear in my day pack. For we call these sun breaks “sucker holes.”
These fall days are brewed by cold unstable air rolling off of the Pacific Ocean and they do deliver hard rain. But, between the showers bright skies beckon you outdoors. You oblige, and find yourself miles from home when the next deluge hits: SUCKER!
