In June 2016, I went on a 25-hour summer solstice
celebration at McMenamins Edgefield,
in the eastern Portland
suburb of Troutdale.
When I wasn’t spending time exploring the food and drink inside Edgefield’s eleven pubs, bars and restaurants, I found myself exploring outdoors as I ranged over the property’s 74 acres.
There were plenty of photo-worthy sights like the hotel
and other old buildings, two golf course,
for vegetables, herbs and flowers, Syrah
and Pinot Gris
vineyards, a large concert amphitheater,
warehouses, a saltwater soaking pool,
and more. Of course, I can’t forget Edgefield’s historic (built 1927) water tower, which can be seen from all over the property.
During the two days I explored the McMenamins Edgefield property, I took a total of 185 photos. The best 82 are now available for a virtual tour in this album. The photos are arrange according to eight different subjects, with the number of images for each subject in parentheses:
- Hotel (26)
- Golf Course (12)
- Amphitheater (8)
- Ruby’s Spa (10)
- Structures (9)
- Halfway House (3)
- Vineyards (4)
- Gardens (10)
The 82 pictures from this album don’t tell the whole story of this vast and rich property. Other articles and albums from my Edgefield 2016 summer solstice celebration include:
