After lingering at the “Encounter” for a bit on Saturday afternoon (See posting below) …. I decided to head out and explore the Portland area on my own. Okay, okay… I was looking to play “Texas Hold ‘Em” at the Spirit Mountain Casino. You caught me.
But first, I stumbed upon a National Historic Landmark that it hadn’t occurred to me was so close to Portland… the end of the “other” trail…. The Oregon Trail. No, not the software game…. the *original* Oregon Trail.
I drove around Oregon City for a bit, and of course got lost. Then it was off to Spirit Mountain to see what I could find. What I found was an hour wait in the Poker Room. I gave up the quest for a Flush and headed back to Portland so I could rest up for what would turn out to be a very busy Sunday.
