This cityscape, taken from the Pittock Mansion on a clear, summer day, is so "Portlandia". The city is laid out directly below. The foothills and extinct volcanoes of east Portland and Gresham are beyond that - there are 33 cinder cones in a 13 mile radius here. And of course, Mt Hood looms in the distance. I enjoyed seeing the large bird floating on the breeze and into my frame :) The view is a perfect mix of big city and the nature that surrounds us, which is a huge part of what Portland prides itself in.
