    and it only gets better….

    Ha, this building (green roof) used to be a factory. Now it’s a coop building. And I rent a place there :) The view is even better. The actual Hell’s gate ark is to the left.

    That building (with the green roof) looks a lot like the building my cousin lives in. If it is, Andy is right…it’s got an AMAZING view! :)

    Hello from Astoria Oregon. I think you visited here last year, or was it earlier this year. Whatever. Good luck on your travels this go-round.

  7. Now, I think I’m missing something…maybe that “city” sights are not my favorite…but this being “an amazing view”…would be (in my view now) a stretch…

    I can see the Greek Orthodox church (bright blue near the Hellgate). I live right by it! Hope to see you when you make it through Astoria again!! Very excited about your new adventure!!

      So that’s what that is. I saw that the first time I looked at this shot. I wondered what that tiny bright blue spot in the shot was. Now I know. Thanks.
