The Magic of Waterfalls

By |2013-01-16T14:45:30+00:00Jan 8th, 2013|

As someone who was born and raised in the urban jungles of Brooklyn, if you would have told me when I was 15 that I’d be living in an area filled with waterfalls, I’d probably laugh. In fact, for most of my life, I never thought I’d leave New York City. And then after living in the Boston area for almost eight years, I never thought I’d leave the Northeast US. Now, living almost 3,000 miles away from my family, I can honestly say that I don’t think I’ll ever leave Portland. Keep staying weird and beautiful, PDX.

    Beautiful!

    I have found a few beautiful smaller waterfalls in northeast Ohio, nestled in the middle of the city… never would have expected that.

    I know it's not the same, but I understand. I grew up in Southern Oregon. I thought I would never leave my small town. I've been in Portland since 2005, I came up for school, and so very happy about it. This is truly a great place to live.
