Virtual World Tour

The Fabulous Portland, Oregon USA! (and some other cool stuff within driving distance), for Patience's project. Go check it out!

We live in the outskirts of Portland. It's not all that impressive right where we live. Just your average apartment complex:




With your average drive home from wherever you've been:




But we do have the Downtown area. I love the Portland skyline at night (note: I did not take this picture!):


But we also have the beach nearby (a 1 1/2-2 hour drive to one of the closest ones, Cannon Beach), which we've already been to with Dorothy a few times:



As well as many, many gorgeous hiking trails within a 1-2 hour drive, such as trails on the Columbia Gorge, with a plethora of waterfalls:



As well as hiking in the mountains (and skiing if you're not a total clutz like Moi):




Oh! And if you want to go on some breathtaking backpacking trips, simply drive 3-4 hours to Central Oregon. Hiking around the 3 Sisters is the most incredible experience ever!:







There are so many more things that I don't have digital pictures of, such as the zoo. I must say, Oregon is one of the most beautiful and diverse states in the contiguous US. Don't you agree?

How gorgeous! It must be nice to be near mountains and ocean at the same time...

I do agree that Oregon is the most amazing of all the 50 states!

Okay, I haven't seen all 50 but Oregon is my birthstate and I miss it often, especially the beaches!

I only lived in Portland for a year, but your pictures sparked so many memories. Though, honestly, the view I saw most was the one through the windshield.
