Portland's Council Crest Park
Monday 2 February 2015 — Category: Outings
My son Jeremy, who is now living in Portland and attending Clackamas Community College, turned 20 over the weekend, so we took him to Benihans’s to celebrate. The scrumptious food and entertaining chef made our first time at a Benihans’s a great experience!
Council Crest Park — at 1,071 feet, the highest point in the city — for the first time as well. In addition to the awesome view of much of the metro area, you can also see:
It is interesting, and completely unintentional, that in four of the mountain photos, there is a large black bird, perhaps the same one, in each of the shots. If I had been trying to achieve that, I probably would not have had such success!
In the summer of 2012 I wrote in my article Exploring the Urban Jungle that “I’m hoping to make another trip or two to Portland later this year in order to photographically explore the city in more depth.”
In the summer of 2013, I wrote in the description of my Portland photo album that “once again, I dream of being more intentional in exploring Portland photographically — will I have the passion to make it a reality in 2013? Or 2014? Only time will tell!”
Despite my desires and good intentions, 2014 passed without a single photo taken there, and I have yet to explore Portland photographically. Nevertheless, even though I have only 9 presentable shots from this outing, I have put them into their own Portland Council Crest Park 2015 album.
