One of the last things that passengers see when departing PDX D gates (international Delta flights) is this statue of former Oregon governor Vic Atiyah. Gonna miss seeing him. I regret only that I didn’t throw my new #capsnothats #airportcarpets cap from @theathletic in my carry on. @jeremydunn you can snap one next time you fly. Later gang, I’m off to Asia for a couple of years!

Exploring Portland’s Cathedral Park

For more photos and videos from the park and its arches, explore the Cathedral Park and St. John’s Bridge location pages.

In the northernmost part of Portland, Oregon, the iconic St. John’s Bridge extends across the Willamette River. Though the bridge has become known for its green hue and distinctly pointed towers, the park underneath has also come to enjoy a fame of its own.

The bridge’s stylized architecture continues even into its soaring concrete supports, which resemble the arches of a Gothic cathedral. Taking its name from the supports, Cathedral Park opened in 1980—a stark change from what had nearly been a junkyard beneath the bridge a decade earlier.

Now, the park’s lush meadow spaces, proximity to the river and dramatic backdrops create a special draw for local and visiting Instagrammers, making the space a favorite for creative outings and InstaMeets.

A post for a sunny day.

First tour of the season in the books. Gusting 40 mph headwinds on Day 1 gave way to a bluebird Day 2 with panoramic mountain views. All good.

Pretty good way to start a Monday morning. Wake up in the woods, be at your desk by 10.
