We recently took a 10 day trip out of Texas. The idea was to go north and escape the hot summer heat; unfortunately that didn’t work. It was hot, but we had a nice trip anyway.
We began our trip in Portland, Oregon. We took a tour of the Columbia River Basin and saw Multnomah Falls. Portland has a wonderful park called Washington Park in the heart of the city. There we visited the International Rose Garden, the Japanese Garden, the Vietnam Memorial, and the Holocaust Memorial. Very nice day.
That night we took an overnight Amtrak train to Glacier National Park. During our four day stay, we took a tour on Two Medicine Lake, a guided tour of the Going to the Sun road, and then visited the park on our own to ride the shuttle around the park. It was absolutely beautiful. If you are interested in nature, I would definitely recommend it.
We came back to Portland via the train and on our last day, we took a tour of the Oregon coast. Again some beautiful scenery.
I love to travel, but this trip was a little difficult because of the heat and the amount of walking/hiking. I’m getting to the point where I need a slower pace; however, I’m really glad I got to see both Portland and Glacier.
Here are some of my favorite pictures.
