It’s been a whlie considering we stopped in at Portland International Airport (PDX).
So we fixed that with a brief go to to see how creation goes on the brand new roof and other areas, do a little shopping, and get a shoe selfie with the terminal’s one ultimate patch of antique PDX carpet.
A full tale will observe, however right here are some a few snaps from a 9,000-step hike through the PDX Airport.
The New Roof
A new 9-acre mass wooden roof has been constructed off-web site and will be put in region over the present terminal and a terminal extension in large portions. The first piece of the roof has just been installed location.
The Last Patch of Carpet
The vintage carpet sample at PDX has gained iconic status. A new patch is promised for somewhere inside the new main terminal. But until then, the simplest vicinity to see and snap a selfie with a remnant of the old rug is within the tiny ‘listening room’ in the back of Tender Loving Empire’s save on Concourse E, near Gate E5.
We didn’t get to do all the shopping we’d planned. But had been had been overjoyed to look the high-quality decal choice on the Made in Oregon shop on Concourse C.
And on the Tillamook Market on Concourse E we noticed ice-cream from Oregon’s famed Tillamook Creamery as well as Tillamook Cheese Curds, that are handiest most effective bought here, at the creamery out in Tillamook (86 miles from the airport) and online.
