THINGS I MISS ABOUT PORTLAND WHEN I'M NOT THERE

Inspired by @Debby's list entitled "THINGS I MISS ABOUT LA WHEN I'M NOT THERE"
  1. The water quality
    Drinking water, wakeboard-able waterways, gorgeous swimming spots, scenic coastlines
  2. The food+drink
    Food carts, independent coffee roasters, access to a Costco, craft breweries, artisan ice cream shops
  3. Trees
  4. The hilarity of OR politics
    Gas station attendants, no sales tax, illegal occupations, and a governor (pictured) resigning out of shame.
  5. My family
    My nuclear family and my incredible large extended family (feat. My great-great grandfather's grave)
  6. Adventuring with friends
  7. Easy travel
    The mountain, Seattle, downtown, the coast, the gorge, small town USA, high dessert
