I’d never heard of Mt. Sylvania, but here was an urban hike, so we went for it. We started at McNary Park, which had a nice mist going.
Most of the hike wound through the largest planned community in Oregon, which sits on the border between Portland and Lake Oswego. There were a good amount of tunnels to walk through. I observed that Lake Oswego tunnels do not stink of urine.
A few houses ring the top of Mt. Sylvania, including this one, custom built for astronomy, and with an awesome weather vane.
On a clearer day you can see a very long way.
This was also one of those hikes where I had no idea where I was most of the time. Just after I took this picture of this house that utilizes much Deco glass, we turned the corner and, “oh hello!” there was the car.
