  1. I miss seeing commerce on the river. First the paper mill at West Linn stopped using barges like this one, then the locks were closed. Now all you see is an occasional gravel barge going to or from Ross Island.

    • Indeed, the Willamette is not so much a working river as it is a view and a park. Of course the flip side to this is that it is much more clean and safe for everyone to enjoy. At least we still have the grain elevator and Ross Island Sand & Gravel near downtown to remind us of the old days.
