"The Multnomah name for Mount Hood is Wy'east. In one version of the legend the two sons of the Great Spirit Sahale fell in love with the beautiful maiden Loowit who could not decide which to choose. The two braves, Wy'east and Klickitat, burned forests and villages in their battle over her. Sahale became enraged and smote the three lovers. Seeing what he had done he erected three mountain peaks to mark where each fell. He made beautiful Mount St. Helens for Loowit, proud and erect Mount Hood for Wy'east, and the somber Mount Adams for the mourning Klickitat."
We arrived in Portland about 3:43 (well exactly at 3:43.45) and found a spot to park in front of Grand Central Bakery. The newly re-modeled Hawthorn location is a Portland that now is a great place to sip and read read your paper surrounded by beautiful kiwi vines and in warm weather ample outdoor deck seating as well.
... and some great places to feed your Epicurean desires. There is my wonderful son in the background along with Nicole and the Scrabble Queen.(you can click on the pictures for the larger version) The eatery we are in is called Tasty N Sons. We all had Low Country Hush Puppies (fantastic) , Fried Cauliflower & Olives with harissa cream (a first but great enough not to be the last) and I ordered Monk's Carolina Cheesesteak that was very very good although next time I'll have them eliminate the lettuce.
