We took a week long “Taste of the Northwest” tour. We flew into Portland, Oregon, and stayed at the Westin Hotel in downtown. For the next week our transportation was by bus. We took a tour of Portland guided by a local. The high point of the Portland tour had to be the Rose Gardens. Here are some photos from the Rose Garden.

We also took a tour of some wineries, went to the top of Mt. Hood (incredible lodge there), drove along the Columbia River, and stopped at Multnomah Falls. Great weather and great scenery!

The Oregon Brewers Festival was the weekend we arrived. We got to spend a couple hours sampling Oregon craft beers. Good stuff!
