An early morning city walk

As soon as it became light, I was off to walk. I like to get my bearings in a new place, and see how the neighborhoods and cityscapes feel. I MUCH prefer to walk outside (in whatever weather) in preference to indoor gyms.

Looping through downtown Portland (very quiet so early) and walking back along the Waterfront Park path was urban, with pockets of streetscape plants. Returning through more of a neighborhood area gave me a different perspective, with restaurants, and coffee houses, and folks stopping on the way to work.


I was impressed with a couple of curbside and parking lot plantings near a huge mall -- definitely an encouraging start for the week!

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
