Ever hear about that one book... 100 best places to be, or whatever? Portland, Oregon is the top on that list. Here, I'll go Google it for you.
Well, I couldn't find the exact book, but I did find this.
My favorite part of that article thingert:
'Then there is the other major reason to recommend Portland: its stellar location in the heart of the beautiful Pacific Northwest. It's an area of unparalleled natural beauty, abundant with recreational opportunities, from skiing at majestic Mount Hood to windsurfing at the Columbia River Gorge and white-water rafting on the Clackamas River. Overall, there are 9,500 acres of parkland in the region, twice as many as in Denver. Not enough fun for you? Oregon's wine country is a hop away, as are rugged Pacific Ocean beaches. "Within an hour of the city you can be on a mountain, at the beach, in the desert or in the middle of a forest," says Portland native Matthew Subotnick, 28, creative services director for KXL radio. "You can't beat it."'
Oh! Yes! We have deserts, too! The Alvord! Those who know me well already know about The Alvord.
Oooh, this is a nice bit, as well. And it's absolutely true.
'But for him Portland's lure is deeper. "There's a feeling that there's room to breathe here."'
That feeling he speaks of! It really exists! He's seriously not kidding!
