People eat when they go to Portland. The food scene is so awesome that we planned where to get an appetizer and a pre dinner drink, dinner, and a place to get dessert and a night cap. It was a really fun splurge on our travel budget!
All this eating encouraged a lot of hikes. My favorite thing about Portland is that you get all the perks of a city and it takes minutes to get out of the rush and into the woods. This day we did an 'Urban Hike', which is just a silly name for hiking up the paved hills, stairs, and a couple short wooded trails to reach the top of the city for a killer view of Mt. Hood.
