Through the Portland Clouds {Portland Week #7}

Even though we tried really hard to look like locals, we had to be total tourists and ride the Portland Aerial Tram. I mean, we already had the maps and the cameras out, so why no go 100 percent tourist style? My favorite was, of course, the fantastic views of my new favorite city, but also the fact that it reminded me of a silver bullet Airstream. Awesome, right?!

The tram travels 3,300 linear feet between the South Waterfront terminal adjacent to the OHSU Center for Health & Healing, and the upper terminal at the Kohler Pavilion on OHSU’s main campus. Traveling at 22 miles per hour, the Tram cabins rise 500 feet for the three-minute trip over I-5, the Lair Hill neighborhood and the Southwest Terwilliger Parkway.

Here are a few shots from our $4 ride.
