Growing up in Portland, Oregon, I developed, among other regional traits, an inexplicable tolerance for wet climates and an appreciation for the natural beauty in the city (although the rarity of that beauty wasn’t apparent until I moved away). And it is the first that leads to the second; as infamous as Portland’s rain is, it is the reason that the city is so decorated with natural greenery, and why there are so many great outdoor things to do and see in the City of Roses.
