Walked 3.33 Miles – Ladd’s Addition

Posted on Feb 5, 2013 in Hawthorne, Hipstamatic, Ladd's Addition, Portland, SE Portland, Walks | 2 comments


Today was blustery. While it rained most of my walk, it was so light that a true Portlander wouldn’t call it rain. I enjoyed the wind and it really wasn’t that cold. I headed to Ladd’s Addition and had a very nice walk.



I wanted to see if this very large building was completely gone. Nope, there is about a half of a block to go. It’s been so amazing to see this building disappear bit by bit.

May peace prevail on Earth

I’m pretty much in love with this picture.

I tweaked this picture quite a bit, so you’d be able to see this squirrel. I knew when I was taking it that the squirrel was horribly back lit, but he was just so cute that I didn’t care. He would run away and then come back. He did this a couple of times until he finally leaned out on his feeder to see me better. We stared at each other for a while until I decided to head on my way.

Color is so rare this time of year. Such a treat.

This is so Portland! This is a brand new supply store for bee keepers…that has applied for a liquor license. Rad. I will be definitely checking back once they’ve gotten their license.


I  just finished reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Cheryl walked 1100 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. Amazing. I’ve thought a lot about this book on my walks. My mom-in-law is currently preparing for her own long distrance trek. I’m so inspired by this concept. I don’t know if it’s for me, but who knows? I’m definitely not ruling it out.


  1. I love that squirrel picture, too! It’s beautiful. Wasn’t that Wild book great? And I’d love to have a walking partner when I return to walk the entire 500 miles someday.

  2. Yeah, it was a great book. Thanks so much for loaning it to me. I can’t wait to hear how this current long distance trek goes for you. I’m not sure I could do the full 500 mile one, but it’s fun to think about. :) It’s also fun to think about walking the PCT through all of Oregon.
