Well Put A Rose On Your Nose

One thing about Portland that stood out to me is how the city had a strong connection with nature.  We walked up NW 23rd St and at the top of the hill there was this little path.  We started walking and we were immediately transported from city to forest.  It's so gloriously green there.  I didn't know how much I missed the vibrant green of the foliage that is so lacking in Arizona.

This path lead us to the Rose Garden.  The roses were all blooming.  I don't think I've ever seen so many roses.  They were huge!  The whole weekend, we had the most gorgeous weather to enjoy seeing all the sights.  

We actually went to Portland after San Fransisco, but I'm waiting on my photographer friend in San Fransisco to send me their pictures.  I barely took any.  I'm a horrible person.  So you're getting Portland first.  I'm trying to think of any interesting or funny stories, but we genuinely had a fabulous time.  Nothing stands out, except for in general our hilarious friends and the belly aching laughs we had.  Sorry, but you kind of had to be there.
