As of last entry we traveled to historic Lavender valley farm, today (and the next day and the next) we travel to Portland. But first we must stop of at Portland Pass: Portland Pass is a old mining town that dates back to the 18 hundreds, but around 1940 the mines shut down so from then on the town relied on only logging. Today however the town has a booming tourist economy. The town has many old buildings and it has a new resort hotel up on a hill nearby. Now we will have a look at it.

Your city looks nice, although Sim drivers sure are in for a rough ride on your highways! Have you considered using a slope mod to smooth your roads out?
