Mt. Hood on the approach to Portland
Apparently, I was there during a rare period of good weather. It rains constantly for the majority of the year. You heard calls to “enjoy the sunshine” everywhere
One of many bridges connecting downtown to the East
Homeless were everywhere. After the police cracked down on meth abuse in the late 90′s, heroin started flooding the market. One of the locals told me that over 3/4 of the homeless are addicts.
The Rose City
These bubblers were everywhere
New greets old
Dude seemed upset that the guy gave him only change
Tillamook State Forest
The freshest clams I’ve ever had
The tracks went all the way north and followed the 101
Shack with a view
When you were done with your clams, oysters or crab, you just threw the shells back to where they came from
The biggest beach I’ve ever seen
You needed to watch yourself whilst wading in the frigid surf, sea wasps were always creeping
The most patient dog I’ve ever seen. He would lay until his master threw the frisbee.. and never missed a catch.
People on the beach let these fire lanterns go. They flew in the air for quite some time before going out. It totally added to the surreal moonscape of the beach.
