It’s been a whlie considering that we stopped in at Portland International Airport (PDX).
So we constant that with a brief visit to look how production goes on the new roof and different areas, do some buying, and get a shoe selfie with the terminal’s one remaining patch of vintage PDX carpet.
A complete story will observe, however right here are some a few snaps from a nine,000-step hike via the PDX Airport.
The New Roof
A new 9-acre mass wooden roof has been constructed off-website online and might be installed vicinity over the existing terminal and a terminal extension in giant pieces. The first piece of the roof has just been installed area.
The Last Patch of Carpet
The vintage carpet pattern at PDX has gained iconic repute. A new patch is promised for someplace within the new foremost terminal. But till then, the handiest vicinity to see and snap a selfie with a remnant of the old rug is inside the tiny ‘listening room’ in the back of Tender Loving Empire’s store on Concourse E, close to Gate E5.
We didn’t get to do all the buying we’d deliberate. But were had been thrilled to look the outstanding decal choice on the Made in Oregon keep on Concourse C.
And at the Tillamook Market on Concourse E we noticed ice-cream from Oregon’s famed Tillamook Creamery in addition to Tillamook Cheese Curds, which might be only handiest offered right here, at the creamery out in Tillamook (86 miles from the airport) and online.
