A Cinco de Mayo Gathering

A new hispanic mercado/food carts venue in SE Portland along Foster Rd. drew a nice gathering on a chilly, threatening evening. Live music highlighted Mexican, Central American and South American sounds. And, several young children were decked out in traditional garb and danced to an appreciative audience. A simple, pleasant evening at the new Portland Mercado.

Between two rocks & a hard place…

At this point, this young woman was about 20′ above the ground. She continued up another 30′ or so up this vertical shaft, of sorts. Her father scurried up the wall, as if nothing, and continued on much higher. I have trouble negotiating a step ladder, So, I admire free climbing.

This week, a young man fell 150′ to his death at Rocky Butte near my home. Every few years, a climber dies on the North side of Rocky Butte.

Here Portland Fire & Rescue prepare to rescue a climber stranded on the side of Rocky Butte in the dark. Also, they are always tasked with recovering the bodies of fallen climbers, who might be wedged in the rocks above the lowest point below.

Colorful Transition…

A few days ago, I showed you the Pop the Cork rose with its creamy yellowish beginning. This pic shows the transition yesterday morning…pink tinging along the edge of the petals.
