Finally on the west coast...

After 14 hours of driving we finally made it to Portland!
Idaho was actually a really pretty state, primarily farming fields and wind turbines. I hardly laid eyes on a potato, or a sign mentioning a potato or anything that referenced potatoes at all. I think we passed by a truck that had tons in there but they looked to be too big and 'rooty'
Near the Hood River on the way to Portland, we stopped at Multnomah Falls, completely beautiful landscapes off of a scenic highway, totally worth the small detour if you are headed out this way.
This was the biggest one but there are plenty more to see. The only reason why we did not see the others is because....
it was pouring! It felt like we were in the falls. Once we got to the city I met up with my best PDX girls, Sara and Kate. Coming here in October has become and annual trip that we all love. We ate at Kenny and Zuke's, a hip deli.
Afterwards, we traipsed next door to a hotel that had a photo booth in the lobby; we could not resist squishing in there for three rounds of photos. One of our favorite places to eat is the Doug Fir, a totally hip restaurant that has yummy food and a killer ambiance accented with retro fixtures and furnishings. Dinner here was a great way to start off our first night in Portland.
