Portland Surprise

So we're in Boise right now, eating way too much food and enjoying spring break (quilting! thrifting! skiing!). I know there are a few who are staying close to home this week, and so I wanted to provide a little activity for our fellow Portlanders who could not make their dream spring break trip (which is Idaho of course...). Last week during a run along the beautiful Willamette, we stopped to enjoy a world famous site that had previously gone unnoticed--

There in the median on Naito Parkway and Taylor, sits the World's Smallest Park, Mill Ends Park. It was created to be a colony for leprechauns and a location for snail races. When you visit this humble park and crouch beneath the shade of the delicate tree, know that you are the only person in the world, at that moment, enjoying this miniature gift from nature.
