Moving to Portland was 1 of my best decisions, however i love to spend as much time outdoors as possible.
While there’s lots of rain, there’s rarely a downpour that forces myself and others indoors, the temperature seldom drops below freezing or climbs above eighty degrees. The summers tend to be short, warm & attractively dry. The winters are wet & freezing however there’s hardly any snowâ€¦ From the balcony of my apartment, I have a appealing view of Mt Hood, and although the volcano is around fifty miles east of the city, clear afternoons make the snow-capped summit seem alarmingly close. Whenever I have some free time, I love to visit Forest Park, but just west of downtown, there are over 5,100 acres of hills & evergreens & trails to explore. It stretches along the eastern slope of the Tualatin Mountains & is a relaxing arena to hike at all times of year. Another number one spot is the International Rose Test Garden. There’s over various miles of flowerbeds, fountains & sods & over 700 varieties of roses. From April to October the profusion of colors & sweet scents are unbelievable. I also love access to legal, adult-use cannabis. I can particularly ride my bike to the dispensary & shop a wide variety of cannabis products. I care about the smokeless consumption possibilities that I can particularly bring along on an excursion. Tinctures are relaxing because the bottle fits into a pocket. I can arena a few drops of a tincture under my tongue without worrying about drawing attention. There’s no smoke, odors or ash.
