Portland, Oregon, inaugurated two space-age looking trams back in 2007. Yesterday, on yet another gray summer morning, my friend and I took our kiddos for their first ride.
As I’m complaining about the weather while many states are suffering from a heat wave, it seems important to note we’ve had the second-wettest spring in 117 years, according to this morning’s Oregonian. All summer, so far, we’ve only had seven days that have hit 80 degrees or higher. Seven.
The trams run from the South Waterfront to OHSU, one of our major metropolitan hospitals. My doctor-obsessed daughter was thrilled to observe all the passengers wearing scrubs and lab coats. It was a great activity for a day that was too cold–again–for the pool.
It’s been a while since I shared a photo essay, so here you go.
