I went to the Pittock Mansion today! It was cold, and kind of creepy cause there was noooo one else there. Actually, it was super rad. Oh! And look at that city view! If it would have been a little clearer, Mt.
Hood would have made an appearance. God DAMN I love this city! So many
fucking wonderful places to explore!
Portland hike pt 2: stone house and Balch creek. We parked at the arboretum (well, one of the free spots very close to the arboretum). From there, we hiked up to the Pittock mansion. We could see a ton of volcanoes.
Then we hiked down to the old stone house (also known as the witch’s hut). I was sad to see a lot of fresh graffiti, but I guess that’s just life with the human herd…
Altogether it was about 6 miles. Mostly switchbacks.
