Lúc Lác

I had someone visit me in Portland and we hung out around downtown. It was fun, then we were hungry and earlier I had seen a food cart that was selling bahn mi so I wanted to go back there and get it.
It ended up that we could find our way back to the food pod so we just looked for some other place nearbye and found Lúc Lác. It was some sort of way too hip Vietnamese place which was weird. It seemed to have a pretty cute happy hour going on though the cocktails were like $9 and pretty small...

I got the bahn mi, even though it was $7 when they usually go for about $4. It was pretty good though, instead of pate it was some yellow sauce which was tasty.

My friend's Pho, it was also pretty good.

Mt. Hood, Trillium Lake, Timberline Lodge,

Similar to the last post... wow a mountain! Hadn't seen that before either.

Mt. Hood

Another shot of it

Really tall hills full of trees

We hiked around these woods and had a picnic

These ducks were very cool with us 

So many different kinds of cute mushrooms in the woods!!!

Some sort of hobo den, who knows

Timberline Lodge, where the outside shots of The Shining were filmed at!!!

Oregon Waterfalls

There aren't a lot of waterfalls in Kansas, so I had never actually seen one before in my life. We made it one of the first things on our list to see!

Horsetail Falls

Multnomah Falls

There were also some really good looking hiking trails around in this area. I will definitely come back to explore them!
