To get there travel travel on I-5 to springfield Oregon, go east on hwy 126 to the town of Walterville, take the first left after passing the weigh station at the east end of Walterville and crossing over the canal. the parking area is about 500 feet west of the turn.
If you have a canoe this would be a great spot to paddle around for awhile.
This was taken at Walterville pond which is just north of the town of Walterville, Oregon. If you look carefully there is a loon taking flight. I had driven by this pond for years without even knowing it was there, until I saw this beautiful sunset reflecting off the water.
