|This is just before the walk started. I wanted to get the 'open' sign. There's a street between the short wall and the buildings.|
|This is the neighborhood where we walked for the first of the two hours.|
|John McLoughlin was known as the Father of the Northwest Territories. His grave is on the right, his wife's on the left.|
|This fountain is a few feet from the graves.|
This section of Oregon City is divided into two sections - on the bluffs and down by the Willamette River where Main St. is. Oregon City is the oldest incorporated city west of the Missouri River so Main St is very old. I wanted to show the difference in the two sections but didn't get any shots of Main St - just of the old industrial section. Maybe next year.
|Looking across the Willamette River at the other paper mill, still operating. The hill leads up to the town of West Linn.|
|This is the Oregon City elevator, legally a vertical street. We can take the elevator or stairs between the downtown, Main St, area and the bluffs above.|
|The Oregon City Arch Bridge has been closed for repairs for almost two years and reopened this morning. It's one of two bridges connecting Oregon City with the other side of the Willamette.|
