Outdoors Floating the Lazy Willamette
Robyn Orr of Salem enjoys a relaxing float on the Willamette River near Salem, Ore., June 22, 2013. Part of whatís surprising about the Willamette River is that, despite it flowing through Oregonís largest population centers, itís quite peaceful for much of the journey. The riverís edges are forested, and the sound of birds is more common than that of cars. (AP Photo/Zach Urness, The Statesman Journal)
