Still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up

Fireworks on the 4th, on Mt. Tabor

Mt Tabor is one of the many beautiful city parks in Portland, OR (info on Mt. Tabor park). It is a mountain, or specifically an extinct volcanic cinder cone right in the city proper.

The above photo is the view of Mt. Tabor from the Ross Island Bridge.

In 1894 the city built the first two of four open water reservoirs on Mt Tabor.

On the fourth, we watched the city fireworks from the top of Mt. Tabor. There is a road and parking right near the top, with a short, but uphill walk to get to a vantage point looking down Hawthorn Ave., straight to the river, where the fireworks are shot off from a barge.

It is a mountain forest escape right in the city. We had a nice picnic before the fireworks show, and afterwards, while we waited for the traffic to clear out, Lauren and Hannah showed off their mad crazy hooping skills.
