|Sunny Day Coffee Cart on 23rd NW!|
Most of you know me well enough to know that I'm kind of a food lover so my treks usually involve food, coffee or a beer depending on the time of day of course. Today I stopped at one of my favorite coffee stops on my way up the hill. The Sunny Day Coffee Cart is a Nob Hill staple and found on 23rd NW. Perfect location for my latte and this apple spice muffin before making the final walk up the hill to the rose garden. Sunny Day opens at 9am and the coffee and baked goods are delicious!

By the way, on Sunday, November 3rd, the arboretum is offering an Autumn Tour at noon and 3pm. No reservations needed! As always when hiking... be sure wear comfy shoes or hiking boots, bring a bottle of water, a snack and your camera.
|Not sure what this is... found at Hoyt Arboretum!|

If you have time before heading out for ice cream, you can include more of the Washington Park activities. The Portland Japanese Garden is colorful like crazy this time of year! The Portland Children's Museum and the World Forestry Center Discovery Museum are great places to visit as well. And... if you don't want to hike up to the park or drive, you can take the MAX all the way to the zoo and walk around from that location. Either way you go, the sights and experiences are great for everyone!
Looking for spooky in Portland this season? Just take a walk but perhaps this would have been scarier closer to dusk which is happening very early these days. Daylight Savings Time ends this weekend so get out and stay out while you can!
