Forest Park

Mar 11

After two days of bouts of rain and snow we finally saw a break to head to Forest Park for a hike in the woods. In case you have never been, it is quite amazing considering you are right in the city, but feel miles away as soon as you step foot into the park. It is very quiet with the breeze blowing through the trees and there are so many trails you almost feel as if you are all by yourself in there. Great if you need a break from the bustle of the city, in even a short lunch break!
Friends of ours had mentioned a specific portion of trail to us called Lower MacLeay Trail. It runs along a stream for the whole way and then breaks off into miles and miles of additonal trails all branching from Wildwood Trail. It is worth taking a look at a map of the park to get the distances for each one. Either trail you pick though, it is a perfect place to walk or run. And don’t forget your favorite little four-legged friend, it is also very dog-friendly!

This is some of the signage along the trail, just to give you an idea of the endless possibilities of trails along the way!

Guiness is always leading the way… he wanted nothing more than to go wandering on the adandoned wooden shelters and walkways.

This is a really neat old stone house on the trail. It is covered in moss and you can walk up into it. I imagine it has been there for a very long time, quiet and collecting moss over the years.
Luckily we brought a jacket for Guinness… he really isn’t a fan of the rain!

At the end of Lower MacLeay Trail, there is a parking lot which leads to the Audobon Society Of Portland. There is also a series of trails in this area with lots of birds and ponds and even tours with Audobon Society members. Definitely no shortage of activities!

Yo Scott – I use to live a few blocks from the entrance to Forest Park – I use to go jogging at 6:30am – running on the scenic trails and the clean/brisk air in my lungs made the early-morning-out-of-bed-struggle well worth it.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
