She comes in colors

If you take a quick look around, you will notice that Portland’s greenery is being replaced by the red, gold, and browns of fall. If you find yourself wanting to take in some of these sights, here are a few suggestions on places you can catch the rainbow.

In no particular order my personal choices are Tryon Creek State Park, The Japanese Gardens, and Forest Park. If you’d like to stay closer to downtown the Park Blocks, especially the Southern end of PSU campus, is really coming alive right now.

Waterfront Park on the West side makes for a nice walk, and for the vehicular crowd the stretch of Barbur Blvd from Front Ave to Capitol highway isn’t bad either. If you do head out that way, duck up Bertha Blvd: it’s a 1/2 mile stretch connecting Barbur to HW 10 and is literally glowing red and yellow right now. You can also head out to the gorge (the view from Vista House is incredible) or up HW 26 towards the coast if you don’t mind the traffic.

As noted by Reid, the Portland Flickr group has some more suggestions along with a few photo’s…check them out here.
