Portland’s Hoyt Arboretum was founded in 1928 and encompasses 189 ridge-top acres.
It’s a pleasant place to visit in all seasons. More than 6,000 specimens of trees and plants from around the world grow in the arboretum.
In mid-winter we enjoyed a two-mile hike in the area. The highlight of our outing was visiting the Winter Garden.
Many flowers were in bloom, including some that I had never seen before. Sparrows and other songbirds kept us company along the way.
Another nice place to visit in the Portland area.
