Keep Portland Weird

We only spent a couple of hours in Portland, Oregon, but it seemed like a very appealing city, so I would very much like to add another impression of it to my gallery. The title doesn’t directly relate to the photo, it’s just a cityscape from downtown Portland after all, but I think Portland’s unofficial motto, Keep Portland Weird, is just too cool not to use.

Portland is the largest city in the state of Oregon with approximately 640,000 inhabitants. It is located near the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. The city was founded in the 1840s near the end of the Oregon Trail by pioneer settlers. The city grew rapidly thanks to its location near the Willamette River. Another nickname for Portland is the City of Roses, because its climate is ideal for growing the flowers.

What you can see here is the corner of First Avenue and Yamhill Street in the middle of Portland Yamhill Historic District.
