Two Weeks in Oregon

 

 
 






















 

May 25 - June 8, 2021

 

For years I've had friends tell me I would love the Pacific Northwest, but I'd never visited until a few weeks ago. A DC friend has been bopping around the US this year and landed in Portland for a few months, and invited me to come stay with her in her family's empty home in Lake Oswego for a few weeks. We worked during the week like normal, but I was still on East Coast hours so I had the afternoons free, and we spent the evenings and weekends exploring. 

 

Things we did that I'd recommend:

  • Powell's 
  • hike to Witch's House
  • Japanese gardens
  • Stumptown Coffee
  • Voodoo Doughnuts
  • Pearl District
  • Papa Haydn
  • hike Wahkeena to Multnomah
  • kayak on the Tualatin 
  • high tea at Clockwork Rose (world's only steampunk tea house)
  • hike Tamanawas Falls in Mount Hood National Forest
  • cooking class with Sur le Table (not Portland-specific, but a PNW-based company)
