The Grimm and his merry band seem to be very successful at capturing evil Wesen in Forest Park.
Besides being a Wesen haunt, the Park is the premier urban forest in the nation, covering over seven square-miles of semi-natural forest.
On a dark, drizzly and gloomy day in early January, I decided to go Wesen hunting myself on the Maple, Chestnut and Wildwood Trails.
The trails meandered in and out of foggy canyons through ferns, leafless red alders, maples, a few cedars and Douglas firs.
Sad to say though, no Wesens (or humans) were seen. Several crows, a few songbirds and one squirrel were the only living critters spotted on the muddy trails during the ten-mile hike.
Forest Park is another fine attribute of living in Portland, and very accessible too.
