Flying Delta “connection” to Portland from Salt Lake city. We’re delayed 45 minutes so far, and it seems that every flight leaving from here has been oversold. Each flight is asking for 3-6 passengers to step off and go on a later flight. That’s a no go for me…a 3+ hour layaway here was much long enough, even with WiFi access. The kid-to-adult ratio here in SLC is pretty close to that of the Orlando airport.
I slept fitfully on the flight here. Because I sat right next to the engine, I had a lot of ‘white noise that helped.
The Rose Gardens are incredible in Portland. The amazing thing about Portland is how polar opposite it is to Seattle. Portland, Oregon is modeled after Portland, ME. The bridges over the Williamette River really reflect this.
