Flying from Frankfurt to Vancouver by the great circle route, we flew over the amazing ice cap of Greenland. *

The main reason for visiting Portland was to spend some time with our son, his wife, and our only grand-child, Ryden. †

 

Some quality time reading with grandma Lynn ... **

 

and bouncing on grandpa Nick. **

Family meal in a Portland steakhouse. *

 

For much of our time in Portland, the weather was miserable but on the Saturday we went to Silver Falls State Park, some 60 miles south of Portland. †

The river below the falls. †

 

Down in the sheltered valley, there was moss growing on the trees. *

Waiting at Portland airport for our flight to Vancouver, the weather was much as it had been throughout our stay. *

Then off for our final stop at Vancouver.
