Day 1: Portland, OR

City View

Last night I made it safely to my sister’s house in Oregon.  My parents flew into the airport at around the same time so this is a nice little family trip (sans brother).  This morning we attempted to hike Angel’s Rest but on the way there we noticed that the highway was covered in chunks of ice, the grass was covered in frost, and all the trucks were pulling off the road to put chains on their tires.  After witnessing a flipped car and being stalled by a blocked road (another car accident), we decided it wasn’t the best day for that particular hike.

Instead we did a little shopping at a nearby outlet mall, then headed back into Portland for grilled cheese and a mini hike at Mount Tabor Park.  Tonight we will have dinner at one of my sister’s restaurants.  More pics of the trip so far on Flickr.
