That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
Matt you are on top of an extinct volcano! Mt. Tabor named after the one in Israel.
I knew it was in the Bible…a battle lead by the Judge Deborah…and also the Mount of Transfiguration…but why name this mountain in Portland Mount Tabor???…must be a reason…named by an early pioneer…maybe it looked like Mount Tabor in Israel???…anyway, nice picture…
I looked this up and: It was originally going to be named Mt. Zion by some local pioneer Methodists. Then the preacher’s son later on came and had been reading a book about Napoleon and His Marshalls, and was impressed by a battle fought near Mt Tabor in Palestine. His enthusiasm won!
Hmm, I left a comment on this pic last night, I was the second I think, do you think the reservoir ate it? ;-)
Wow, even the reservoirs are gorgeous. This is one pretty part of the country.
are these the product of rain and run-off or are these beautiful reservoirs spring fed?
Again – beautiful!
