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, multiple gardens 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)
