portland.






 




oregon was a dreeeeam--mostly because of moss and trees and that intense green that keeps getting brighter in every picture. you know? it made me obscenely happy, so much that i couldn't help but point out every 5 minutes, "look at that moss!" "jordan, oh my gosh it's soooo greeen!" "look how magical that park is, and over there! a canopy over the street. can you believe it?" i'm a little obnoxious when i get excited.

we stopped at multnoma falls on our way in to the city & hiked that whole sweaty, muggy mile to the top. WORTH IT. i kept stopping and ogling everything, it was like walking through a postcard. seriously--the green started hurting my eyes after awhile, it was so sharp.

we only spent a day in portland--but it was well spent. (aka we lunched at the 'food truck tour' and voodoo doughnuts. #fatkiddiaries) afterwards, we took a tram up to the top of this massive hill and looked out over the city and the columbia river and all of these mini-sailboats next to skyscrapers. portland has this northwest-y vibe, similar to seattle, that i love. there's just a little less madness and a little more deep-breathing. take me back soon.

ps, that picture with the elephant? a homeless guy set up shop underneath. i was pretty impressed at jordan's angling abilities--you can barely see his feet! ha ;)
