Pretty Pictures from Portland

Portland had more to offer than just food. It's a very pretty city, both the greenery and the urban design (particularly in the Pearl district). They have the largest Japanese garden outside of Japan and a hell of a lot of roses. Here's a montage of pics that we took:

More Japanese Gardens (there were 9 in all, I think)
 And here's more:

 
Still in the Japanese Gardens
  
At the International Rose Test Garden - this is a small fraction of what we saw. So many roses...


Finally, a killer view from Washington Park:
 
The majestic Mount Hood
