View of the Union Pacific rail yard, the Fremont Bridge (auto traffic only), and Downtown, all on a typically wet January day.
Forest Park looms on the hills behind the city’s industrial corridor on the Willamette River.
The yards are always busy with rail commerce.
Looking to mostly industrial lands and the historic Montgomery Park building
Portland’s riverfront, north of the Fremont Bridge (that big one seen in these photos), is utterly about work. Trains. Factories. Shipping and receiving facilities. Grain depots. Cement kilns. Factories. Fuel depots. The best perch to soak all that up is from Overlook Park. I took the photos from here, and also from another spot a block away at Overlook House.
