From Portland Pass to the City Of Portland.

Sign in to follow this  


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.


On our way to the town we turn onto highway 15


Here is some logging we pass by.


Here is the newish resort hotel, with a path winding near it. We are staying here for the night!


At this road we now turn onto main St which is the one with the median.


We now stop at the bank


The local main St park, this a were number 1 mine used to start.


Here is a few shots of downtown.




Here is the end of Main Street, time to turn around I guess.


After leaving town, we start the climb to the real Portland pass.


We stop at the top of the pass.


Now we are heading by Granite Bluff.



We pass by dear road in Dear Valley.


We now turn off highway 15 onto the Trent Portland freeway.


We go under the Geoburg highway road which signifies entry into the Portland Valley.


And finally some farms.


We have now entered East Portland, here is its small commercial core. We turn into it at the exit.


Ah at last we reach the hotel.


And here is some malls along with the train station.

And now!


That can wait till next entry. :D

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?
