    It's real green for a reason.

    I've been there about 8 times since my son moved there in 2016. They visit us too when they are able. They love it, so I can't complain. Son, as a child, grew up in Chicago so he doesn't mind the gloom. He loves the outdoors, and hiking. His little girls do too. I'm surprised his CA. native wife likes it, but she does! So Portland has a lot of appeal to those who love the outdoors and cooler weather. Their coastline is beautiful, sun rarely shines, rocky, not at all like San Diego but it's stunning. And their fall weather, the colors are spectacular. The best I've ever witnessed.
    A two hour plane ride is easy peasy.

    Utah is beautiful. Enjoy your trip.
    I want to check out the Shanghai tunnels.

    I haven't done that yet...
    Maybe this trip I will suggest it to son.
    That sounds like fun! We could finish it off with a trip to Voodoo Doughnut

    I'll start. Me and Mrs. azgreg are headed to Utah next week to do some hiking at Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park with a stop at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

    Can't wait.
    This is a great thread.
    Thank you.

    Wonderful.
    Have a great time. I stopped there on a cruise a number of years back.
    You'd probably like Palm Springs since you are gay, but you probably already know this. Such a friendly place.

    We are only 90 minutes from PS, and hubby and I visit about six times a year. The attraction? They have the best little boutique resorts and spas in the west and a great casino where we enjoy playing blackjack.

    Enjoy castle watching... awesome!
    Viking or?

    We took a day cruise on the Rhine while on a Globus tour a numbers of years back.
    We took a big Mediterranean cruise after spending a few days in Venice and embarking from there. Fun but hectic.
