    Have to hit up the Acropolis. Come for the locally sourced steak bites, stay for the meat pie.

    Yes, also Eagle Creek Trail to Punchbowl falls would be great in May. Water will be cold, but jump the cliff.

    will you have a car? because with a car comes access to the gorge. and access to the gorge = really great hikes an hour from town.

    The Lost Lake hike near Mt. Hood is pretty easy and you end up here. I don't think I've been there since I was about 12, though.

    Oneonta is way too damn cold to wade up the canyon right now - and the trail up to triple falls is down for a landslide. Eagle Creek is arguably the premier hike in Oregon, but you have to get there super early because parking on that exit off the highway fills up in a hurry. I've tried twice to hike out of there and was shut down because the only way we could do it would be to hitch hike down the freeway back to that exit.

    Angel's Rest is an easy ~5 mile-ish hike. You can do that one easily in an afternoon. Multnomah Falls you should at least see, but in terms of a hike it's pretty shitty. Go check it out and then drive up to Angel's Rest.

    Here is the summit for that hike:

    Portlanders-I forget the name of the donut place, but they are iconic in Portland and terrific. Also, this time of year if you can get to a Timbers game it is a fun experience. Lots of hiking in the large park on the mountain behind the city.

    Posting and following for later as I too found out today I will have to make a visit to Portland sometime in the near future. Going to try and due a LEAVE en route to my TDY to check out a homestand in Seattle if possible and if it's not too terribly far away to drive to for a few days to stay with a buddy.

    Seattle to Portland is not a bad drive. If you have the time, take the 101 down the coast and go through Astoria (where Goonies was filmed).

    The shitty thing is when I come out it will only be for a 36 hour or so period for work to do an inspection. But I want to try and get as much done as quick as I can with work so I can get out and enjoy that area as much as possible. Hence taking a few days of LEAVE to try and see more of it.

    for real though if you're going to go to a strip club and partake in that good Oregon hard liquor and full nude, full contact private lap dances, then you need to make your way out to Casa Diablo.

    Literally one of probably the 4-5 prettiest and most iconic drives in the country. Has the second tallest continuous waterfall in the country (and 4-5 others at least 200+ feet within 2 miles of that one). It is 4,000 feet deep in some areas (a city like Portland sits at 60 feet above sea-level, so those 5,000 foot mountains you see around the volcanoes are actually as large as most of the Rockies mountains in terms of prominence and size). Mt. Hood, Rainier, St. Helens, Adams....if you have never seen a volcano it will change your perception of what a 'mountain' is.

    If you get a chance, go check out Mt. St. Helens and go see what it feels like to be a nothing. Incredible to see what our earth is capable of.

    Eagle Creek, which is the Punchbowl Falls hike, is amazing. I went on the Tuesday after Labor Day around noon and had no trouble finding parking at the trail head. I think you would be fine on a weekday, but it's worth getting up early to get in there if you're only there on a weekend.
