I'm posting this picture of the Portland Japanese Gardens today for a couple of reasons. Number one, as sort of a wish. I really would like to go there this autumn and do some photography of the changing leaves. Its such a gorgeous place year round, but with the splashes of red, orange and yellow, I can imagine it would be even more so. Secondly, this little footbridge makes me think we need these all over the Portland Metro area for the next 6 months or so, during the rainy season. The ground becomes a standing lake in many areas, and these elevated walkways would be so helpful!
