Portland Burnside East and West 2015 — photo 1 of 144: This TriMet Line 20 bus stop marks the western city limits of Portland, Oregon, along the major thoroughfare of SW Barnes Road, just 40 yards west of the strange intersection at which the thoroughfare suddenly becomes West Burnside Street, and SW Barnes Road branches off to the right and the left (see map).
This intersection area is a small triangle of the Portland city limits which extends 225 yards west from Multnomah County into Washington County. I was disappointed that there were no street signs marking the city limits nor the county boundary — bad photo op!
It was from this bus stop that I began my 12½-mile walk along Burnside Street between the western and eastern city limits of Portland. September 2015.
Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 35-100mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
