Portland's Japanese Gardens
Laurie and I recently took a trip to Portlands Japanese gardens. A place to which niether of us had ever been despite living in Oregon for several decades. We thought october would be prime fall foliage color but come to find out that early november is a much more colorful time to go. There is a sense of serentity as you walk among the maples and rock gardens ( the Zen thing I guess). We would recommend a trip there but plan it carefully if your looking for fall color. Admittance is $8.00 and there is a $2.00 dollar tripod fee for those so inclined.
