Hello Portland! It's about damn time! Around 2006 I became very interested in visiting Portland, Oregon. I heard friends
and strangers alike boast of it's laid back, earthy "hipness." I mean, what's not to love? Mountains, coffee, every type of
artisans known to (wo)man, shoot, I was sold. It may have taken several years to get there, but this past weekend I finally
did. My life-long BFF (Emily! seen in such previous blog adventures as D.C. for the Holidays and A weekend whirlwind) mentioned that she had a good friend from Peace Corps (Eryn) who lived in Portland and we should go visit. No-brainer!
Below is a view from my seat on the plane. If you look far off into the distance you can see two mountains. There were
some discrepancies on the plane, but they are some combinations of Mt. Hood, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helen or Mt. Rainier.
