You know how it is: when you live in a town, you never actually visit the tourist attractions. But living in Portland or not, some of the tourist attractions are really worth it.
So today we went to visit the Pittock Mansion, in the Northwest of the city. It was well worth it, with displays of Maxfield Parrish paintings, lovely furniture, and the house itself is just exquisite. There's no such thing as a bad view in that place.
