Portland's a very interesting city. I (along with my relatives up in Beaverton) always thought of Portland as a fun sized version of Seattle. It's still a beautiful city, certainly a clean city.

Outside the tunnel of the first picture. Prior to the tunnel on the west side would be US Route 26.

I plan to go to Downtown Portland again soon to take more pics.

Wow great airport for a city of such a small size. The airport really reminds me of Terminal D in DFW. I love Portlands climate, how much sun do you guys get up there?

Nice pictures, the skyline is really uneventful, I went there a few months ago, and I can tell you the street life is really impressive though.

Yeah, Portland has a lot of activity for a city its size. Very lively. In fact, I believe it's even livelier than San Francisco. Maybe because it's rated as one of the safest cities in the U.S.

You're also right about the current skyline. However, there are plenty of projects right now that will dramatically change the city.

Portland reminds a bit of Frankfurt (not the skyline, but the location by the river).

I hear a lot about Portland but rarely see threads about it on SSC.

Nice pics so far, keep posting.
