Well, I'm trying to rectify this on even a tiny scale by sharing some photos from last fall's trip to the northwest.
One of my favorite stops was a visit to the Chinese garden in Portland. It was on my "maybe" list, and could have easily been missed. Thank goodess I got there. It was an amazing place.
It covers a relatively small area, but it seems much larger. And it's right downtown. I can't recommend it heartily enough. If I lived in Portland I would definitely have a membership so I could go all the time.
They have these amazing rocks that were brought from China that has these holes in them. They're a specific formation and incredibly cool.
There were tons of water lillies and fishies, of course.
And a ton of amazing vistas...
all with great walkways...
Many, many, many of the pathways were these intricate designs of rocks. They had a dozen different combinations and everyone was incredible cool. One of these days I'll get more of the pictures done and post them.
As you may know from reading here I am a rock lover, so this was paradise on many levels to me.
