Wednesday walk (lots of photos)

Among Portland's many good features: good places to walk. Which I did for a few miles yesterday, into and out of Forest Park. I started at Lower Macleay Park, with the goal of "let's get at least to the Stone House, and see where to go from there." After that? Another miles or so up a steeper but still manageable climb to the Pittock Mansion, built by the founder of The Oregonian. That was my first time up there. And it was in an utterly gorgeous day. I also apparently didn't get burned worse than I already am! WIN.

Here are photos (behind a cut).

The Stone House is a former restroom building, built in the 1930s. The 1962 Columbus Day storm -- the remnants of a tropical storm that plowed through Western Oregon -- damaged the building enough that the city simply removed the plumbing and abandoned the place. Now it's a cool ruin, and still a landmark.

It's also informally called "The Witch's House," which inspired this.
