R.B. goes to Portland, OR!

Caught a flight to Portland, OR to meet up with my friend, Halie. I already felt pretty adjusted to the cooler temperature due to our current Texas winter, so being outside was a treat! Our first outing was meeting up with a group of her friends to hike at Macleay Park. We watched our friends run through the 1930’s Stone House built on the trail until a snowball came our way! Our friend group broke out into a snowball fight – it was so much fun slipping and sliding everywhere.
Later that day, we warmed up in the OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) to see Dark Universe in the planetarium. It was almost too easy to get lost in space in this showing of space exploration, plus there’s no better tour guide than Neil deGrasse Tyson!
The next day our friends took us out to Latourell Falls. The weather was a little drizzly which left for a nice misty view to the majestic path. We climbed all the way to the top of the waterfall AND behind it! Gosh, the wind behind the waterfall was so strong and the volcanic rocks were almost a little too slippery to walk on, but we did it! We played around and explored the waterfall until the water from the drizzle turned into tiny ice pieces! We hopped into the car with our friends and rode to the grocery store to get ingredients for a pizza party! Our friends made the most delicious pizzas for the cold weather.
We ended the night at a reveal party of Atifact’s Spring Photoshoot – it’s a very cool, sustainably driven, design store.
Before our plane ride back home, our friends took us to the historic, Burnside Skatepark to push around a bit. Such an action-packed trip, we couldn’t have had a better time!
