Hello Portland!

Jun 29, 2022 in Travel

Took a trip up to Portland, Oregon last weekend for my niece's wedding. I could not stop commenting on how green the city is. There are trees everywhere! It's a beautiful city, with the Willamette river running right through the city center.

<p>First stop, Deschuttes brewery for some cold beer and lunch. Outdoor seating was a bit much, the high that day was 97º. Still, great beer and even better food.</p>

<p>Mt. Hood was visible from our hotel. Such a majestic mountain, that also just happens to be a dormant volcano.</p>

<p>Stopped at Washington Park to see the rose garden. The park is similar to our Griffith Park here in Los Angeles. It's huge, with hiking trails, a zoo, the rose garden and a Japanese garden as well. Such a beautiful park, and just minutes from Downtown Portland.</p>

<p>You can't stop in Portland and not get a Voodoo donut. We're not big donut fans, but they sure were tasty.</p>

<p>Our last day was some exploring parks along the river. Oaks Park was filled with people enjoying the summer. Dogs were running loose everywhere, which felt a bit weird at first. Like a dog park with no fences. </p>
