Sunrise from OHSU | Portland Aerial Tram

I can’t believe it took me four years of living here before I finally rode the Portland Aerial Tram, especially since for the last 21 months I’ve lived within a 10 minute walk of it.

But, here we are, four plus years of living in Portland and finally getting myself up in that little bubble. The sunrise view below is from an observation deck at OHSU’s Kohler Pavilion on a morning that clouds covered the city in its early morning hours.

Mt. Hood peeks out from a distance, and the tram sneaks its way up to the top.
