Earlier in the month I enjoyed a won­der­ful couple of hours at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse property, lo­cat­ed on NW Cornelius Pass Road in Hillsboro, Oregon, in the western Port­land metro area. As an extra bonus, I got the first three stamps in my new Mc­Men­a­mins Passport.

Leaving there, I drove north on Cor­ne­li­us Pass Road, then branched off to the left onto Old Cornelius Pass Road, until I arrived at the McMenamins Rock Creek Tavern, on the eastern edge of Helvetia and only 3.5 miles away from the Road­house. It was time for one more beer, one more Passport stamp, and one more round of photography before the 81-mile drive south to my home in Albany.

After finishing my boysenberry beer, I wandered around the building to see if there were any interesting shots. The upstairs loft was really nice looking, and totally empty on a Tuesday in the middle of the afternoon. As typical with most McMenamins locations, there was plenty of custom artwork to admire, including some stained glass works by Portland master David Schlicker.

I didn’t stay long, but it was a tasty treat — for the photography even more than for the beer! I took a total of 21 pictures, and the best 11 now have their own home in this album.
