My Day on Portland TriTri-Met RoseMet & Aerial Tram

Portland Wikpedia LinksFriday August 17th 2007 - The first day of my three day visit to the
 Portland Oregon Area, I rode all three transportation forms of the
 Tri-Med Pubic Transit System; Bus, MAX Light Rail, Portland Street Car
 and the Portland Aerial Tram. I stayed in a motel, south of Portland,
 across I-205 from the Clackamas Town Center Mall.

  Walking across I-205 to the Clackamas Town Center Mall, from my motel,  I looked north and viewed the
  Construction of the Clackamas Town Center Station* on the south end of the new “Green” MAX Line.

Portland Aerial Tram
  We rode the Aerial Tram to the Kholer Pavilion Terminal on Oregon Health & Science University's
  Marquarm Hill Campus and back. The fantastical views of Portland is worth hour+ ride to downtown,
   on Tri-Met bus, Max Line and Streetcars. I missed the free ride on Aerial Tram by one day.
