Portland’s Pioneer Place Mall
Friday 8 April 2016   —   Category: Outings
On the way to the second half of my Burnside Street hike, I had some time to kill in downtown Portland before I grabbed a snack and hit the road. Finding myself at the Pioneer Place mall, I explored it photographically for about thirty minutes.

What a wonderful place to roam with a camera! Soaring wide open spaces, streaming sunlight, fountains, pools, brightly-colored and unusual window displays — these all cried out for pho­to­graph­ic attention. The two huge, spectacular glass roofs were par­tic­u­lar­ly eye-catching.

This mall is gigantic, with four interconnected build­ings covering four city blocks. You could spend hours in there and still not run out of sights to see.

All too soon my half hour was up. I headed to the Yard House restaurant at 11:00 for a short rest and small snack before my 6¼-mile after­noon walk. I have shared the details of what I ate and drank there in a separate article: Portland Burnside Mini Pub Crawl.

I can’t believe I lived in Oregon nine years be­fore finally discovering Pioneer Place! It would definitely be worth taking the time to explore more fully in the future. I would especially like to spend some quality time in the Apple Store.

I took 35 photos during my short time there. The best 19 have made it into the Portland Pioneer Place Mall 2015 album.
