The part of Willamette Slough seen here, that was wide and deep enough for recreational boating. Riverfront Park with its tents and eclipse-chasers lay to the right, and Minto-Baker Island lay to the left.

Willamette Slough was fed by a couple of creeks. Here was one that ran through downtown Salem and emptied into Willamette Slough.

A brief video of the water flowing under Minto Island Bridge. The bridge passed over Willamette Slough and connected Riverfront Park to Minto-Baker Island.

The wetlands of Minto-Baker Island formed a sink to prevent flooding of the city. In the midday light, the seen was lovely with Willamette Slough passing through it.
