Exploring the McMenamins Edgefield Property
Saturday 5 November 2016   —   Category: Outings
This is part three of a five-​part series about my two-​day 2016 summer solstice celebration at the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Port­land metro area. For the first two articles, see: 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 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.

I’m not going to write much about what I saw because it’s the pictures which tell the story. During the 25½ hours I explored the McMenamins Edgefield property, I took a total of 185 pho­tos. The best 82 are now available for a virtual tour in the Mc­Men­a­mins Edgefield Grounds 2016 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)
Even the 82 pictures from this album and the 95 from the Edgefield Pub Crawl album don’t tell the whole story of this vast prop­er­ty. So be sure to continue with parts three and four of this series, as well as two more albums, which dig deeper into Edgefield’s artistic richness:
