Tonight’s volkswalk was along the Willamette River in Downtown Portland. Each December, boats decorated in lights travel on the Willamette and Columbia Rivers. This walk corresponded with the boats, so we were able to see the lights of the city as well as the boats. It was a lot of fun, but definitely cold. Okay, not as cold as Minnesota, but there was ice on the walkway, so there!
The “Made in Oregon” sign is a Christmas landmark in Portland. Each year the deer becomes Rudolph with a red nose. The other photo is of the city’s Christmas (believe it or not , the land of the liberal still uses that term) tree in Pioneer Square.
