It turns out that exactly everyone in Portland had decided to go into the mountains to ski for New Year's weekend, and needed to get back into Portland by Sunday night. We spent hours on Mount Hood, surrounded by gorgeous redwoods, in bumper-to-bumper traffic. The cars inched down the mountain at 3mph, and we barely made it into Portland in time to return the rental car and make it onto our midnight flight. The bonus? I managed to take some interesting pictures from the passenger seat...
