去俄勒冈住树屋——山水风景篇

Mt. Hood相对于Portland就和Mt. Rainier相对于Seattle一样,都是神一般的存在。飞机还没降落,就看到云层上面,几座雪山连成一线,在阳光下熠熠生辉。

Mt Hood, 3429米,俄勒冈最高峰,是一座活火山,上次喷发大约200年前。后来几天,它和我们如影随形,竟然转了几个弯又出现在我们眼前。它地标式的身型如此高大挺拔,让人心驰向往。

到站取了车,已过中午,我们到Portland Downtown去觅食。网红店Mother’s Bistro排长队,我们就在附近溜达溜达。水边的城市感觉就是有灵气,夏天尤其清爽宜人,和西雅图感觉有点相似。

终于轮到我们,吃了著名的Salmon Hash,味道非常不错。

然后上路,沿着Hood River一路向东。到了Chanticleer Point,我们停下来看风景,远眺Hood River河谷和Vista House。这里有一块介绍风景的牌子上面写着Cascade Range云云,才宝就惊呼:原来这里就是Cascade Range了!我一脸茫然,啥是Cascade Range?才宝着急的给我解释,就是一片叫Cascade的山啊!终于惊醒,原来是喀斯喀特山脉,是不是地理课上学过?

下一站是Multnomah Falls ,这是是俄勒冈州最高的瀑布,高约190米,分成两段,而那座跨越山谷和瀑布的桥更是让人一眼便能认出来。可惜去年着了山火,想要去看它还着实不易。

我们在84号公路上开到那里的时候谁知大红灯高挂,路障也都设在那里,说是停车场已满,不能再进车了。吃了闭门羹我们并没有泄气,在前面一个路口折返又开了回来。谁知还是一样的。我们心说,那就多转悠几次,权当看看俄勒冈高速路两边的风景了。不过运气还算不错,再一次转悠回来的时候停车场终于开了,我们也终于如愿以偿的看到了这座地标。 44 more words

It’s just before five in the morning and I’m standing bleary-eyed in front of the glowing display case at Joe’s Donuts—a delightfully ramshackle bakery halfway between Mt. 1,723 more words
