We decided to visit the upper West Coast aka the #bestcoast and I couldn't stop falling in love with so many amazing things about it! We were only there a short stay, but long enough for me to notice people are nice, the food is divine and the scenery is stunning. The first thing I did when I set out into town was take the MAX line into town and then the bus and every person getting off the bus would tell the driver thank you and yell have a GREAT DAY! I think I literally laughed out loud thinking about New York's buses and then accepted that this is AWESOME!
We spent our time eating at some delicious food places: Country Cat (I had the apple multi-grain pancakes and they were bliss) one night for dinner we had Pine State Biscuits and if you get the chance to try this...it might blow your mind. We then spent the rest of our time exploring around some of the prettiest areas I've ever seen! We hiked Saddle Mountain, which is where we took our engagement pictures with the SUPER talented Phil Chester and the next day my dear friend came down from Seattle and we drove to the coast.
We loved Portland and as a photographer I could dream of living here for SURE...maybe some day!
