portland parting shots

I wandered around my Portland neighborhood today to take a few parting shots. Today was our last full day here this summer.

Did you know that Portland is one of the most well-read cities in America?

And one of the most tattooed?

There is a huge transient population of homeless men, women and teenagers.

If you keep your eyes open, you can find entertaining and inspiring messages all around town.

There are miles and miles of hikes through urban forested parks. This one, Forest Park, is just a twenty minute walk from our neighborhood.

Here's the view from our little balcony as the lights of the city begin to twinkle after sundown.

Til next time, Portlanders, you know what to do...
