PDX photowalk

Recently, I had an extra hour at Portland’s airport. I was half an hour early and Jamison’s plane was half an hour late. Knowing I’d be early, I’d taken my camera. I explored the MAX station, through the South tunnel to the new rental car area, and along the ride-hailing pickup zone.

Going downhill at Mt. Tabor

Wednesday means Mt. Tabor. Unfortunately, longboarding is just not the same thing without Jamison. Little buddy!

I did some runs from the bottom third or so. It’s the most efficient considering the run’s length vs. the return walking length. And it does eliminate the risk of all but one blind corner, a good thing when skating alone.

The views are spectacular! My photography and the time of day don’t do it justice.

The bridge to PDX

About a week ago, Suzi and I dropped Melissa off at the airport. Normally, I park on the fourth floor of short term parking because that is the skybridge floor. As I got off the ramp, I noticed the sign said one parking space was available. What?! There was a car ahead of me, too.

I dropped Suzi and Melissa off at the skybridge and looked for the ramp to go up another couple of floors. Parking above the skybridge, I saw a different view than I normally see.

Mmm… I like it! :-)

Flower

Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is a beautiful walk from the NW 23rd neighborhood. I spotted this flower along the way.
