Mt. Tabor Park

This was our first time visiting Mt. Tabor Park (), which is located on a cinder cone in SE Portland (check out these two PDFs to learn more about the geology of Portland, including its volcanic features: Volcanoes of the Portland Area, Oregon [1975] and Portland, Oregon, geology by tram, train, and foot [2009]). Along with numerous trails and views to enjoy, it has several city reservoirs that make for an interesting outing. (photos)

    When we were in Portland last summer, I went running on Mt. Tabor (in the rain, of course) and took the boys to the playground with my friends’ kids. It was great. I love the big Doug firs and stuff growing everywhere…I guess that’s just about everywhere in western Oregon.
