beautiful spring-like weather (updated)

The weather yesterday was beautiful! At the ungodly hour of 7:00 AM, Scott and I decided to drive some place high enough look over the heavy morning fog. We chose OHSU's Marquam Hill campus at the new (and notorious over-budget, $55M not $15.5M, because it has to look pretty) aerial tram. It was amazing to watch the fog flow down the Willamette valley. Even a OHSU worker who had finished his overnight shift said he had to come out and see the fog.

Here are some of our photos (mostly Scott's photos):

Mt. Hood

Downtown towers poke through fog. Mt. St. Helens in the background.


Later, Sheena joined us and we had our first bike ride of the year on the Springwater Corridor and tried out the new (and long-anticipated) bridges.


02/20/2007 UPDATE: Added some of my camera phone photos of Scott and Sheena. I also revised and added text.

Yes, I thought it was a crazy idea too, until Scott made me go up there. What was really amazing was seeing clouds flow like a river over the city.
