A Walk In The (Forest) Park
Summer has been late to arrive in the Portland area this year and it's been difficult for me to get motivated to get out and experience nature. Thankfully the city's west side is home to Forest Park, one of the nation's largest public parks and green spaces. On a recent Saturday afternoon I hopped on my bike and crossed the river and spent a couple hours strolling in the forest....in the city.
