361Days ShezPhoto #5 PDX Tram
The tram takes people from the waterfront up and over the Interstate 5 freeway to a complex of hospitals on a very steep hillside. A quick and safe passage from level terrain with adjacent parking to “Pill Hill.” Though the ride is by car takes you on a lovely drive up winding roads, beautiful houses, hiking trails and pristine woods to a confusing labyrinth of medical buildings joined by skyways. There is a puzzle of high-rise parking structures containing few if any empty parking spots. The tram is fast, easy, stress free and gives people a bird’s eye view of south-west Portland.
