Portland has the reputation as the hipster capitol of the U.S. It’s quirky and weird for sure, but also rugged in that industrial Northwest sort of way.

Nature and the outdoors is a part of this small city and very much part of the way of life here - from biking to hiking to kayaking or exploring the Columbia River Gorge and its waterfalls.
