Tom McCall Point Hike

Michael is in town for a week, and he couldn't have picked a better weekend to come to Portland. The weather is spectacular, and I planned a hike for us that would be easy to get to, not too long, and reward us with spectacular views of the Columbia Gorge, Mt Adams, and Mt Hood, plus thousands of native wildflowers! So we hopped in the car and drove east on I-84 to Tom McCall Preserve for a three-mile round trip hike up to Tom McCall Point and back. The wildflowers were nearing their peak, and the flowers and views were incredible. Enjoy!

Once local singer-songwriter Matt Ward's new album Hold Time is out tomorrow, and here is the video for the title-track featuring Portland's own aerial tram that connects the South Waterfront development district to OHSU. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

My favorite local band Point Juncture, WA got to perform a live set on OPB in front of a studio audience. A handful of songs and some witty interview banter to enjoy. They also were recently signed to a record label out of Seattle and will be getting their first nationwide release of their new album "Heart to Elk" this February. Huzzah!
