I used to read The Oregonian and watch Katu News to get local weather and events for Portland. Now I can only do it on line since I accept a job offer in my home town.
To live in Portland for five years, I do have a lot of sweet memories in town.

Jenkins Estate Camille Park has several pretty walking trails. I like that this is close by and open to the public most of the time.Jenkins Estate Camille Park
趁著假日午後訪友,到離她家附近約十分鐘的步道走走晃晃,發現這個人煙稀少的公園,很羨慕朋友有這麼一個秘密後花園,除了有OSU的實驗農場還有滿開的花,很難想像要花費多少的人力才能維持好這個環境。

If you want to see different kinds of ducks and geese, you have to come to Crystal Spring Rhododendron Garden.
The ducks and the geese are more than comfortable with you and entertaining--lots of baby geese right now.
When my landlord mentioned about Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, I didn't pay attention until I ride my bike and explore this place.

When I want to release my stress from studying, Hood River is my best choice. It only takes me around one hour 10 mins by bus, but there are only three buses on the schedule per day.

This is a good place to learn from your own experience. In different sections, children can try several experiments.
