On the Cover: Fall 2019 Park and Recreation Guide
Our fall cover features the winner of the Willamalane Park Foundation photo contest, “Autumn at Willamalane.” The winners of each category are listed below. Thanks to all who entered!

“Daddy & Me" by Cristal Flores
First Place in the Dorris Ranch category and Best in Show

We love the pure joy and loving spirit that comes from the connection in this photo. The gorgeous warm hues and soft light depict Dorris Ranch as it was meant to be seen: as a working filbert orchard, but also as a place to grow, learn, and play together.
We commend Cristal Flores for her beautiful work and are proud to award her the top prize of the photo contest. Find more of her work on Facebook at Cristal Gayle Photography, LLC.

“Soothing” by George Cardenas

First Place in the Nature, Flora, and Fauna category

This serene image of two boaters instantly puts the mind at ease. We particularly enjoyed the way the image is framed by the tree leaves.

“Bob Artz Foliage” by Dave Snare


“Fall Fun” by Scott Chase

First Place in the Sports and Activities category

We can all relate to the thrill of scooping up a big handful of fall leaves and tossing them everywhere! This girl, her expression, and her emotion are timeless and precious.
