On the way to the second half of my Burnside Street hike, I had some time to kill in downtown Portland before I grabbed a snack and hit the road. Finding myself at the Pioneer Place mall, I ex­plored it photographically for about thirty minutes.

What a wonderful place to roam with a camera! Soaring wide open spaces, streaming sunlight, fountains, pools, brightly-colored and unusual window displays — these all cried out for pho­to­graph­ic attention. The two huge, spectacular glass roofs were par­tic­u­lar­ly eye-catching.

This mall is gigantic, with four interconnected build­ings covering four city blocks. You could spend hours in there and still not run out of sights to see.

All too soon my half hour was up. I headed to the Yard House restaurant at 11:00 for a short rest and small snack before my 6¼-mile afternoon walk.

I can’t believe I lived in Oregon nine years be­fore finally dis­cov­er­ing Pioneer Place! It would definitely be worth taking the time to explore more fully in the future.

I took 35 photos during my short time there; the best 19 are presented in this album.
