We had a pretty full day. We got up at 4:45 because we had to go to the VA facilities in Vancouver, north of the river, for a 7:30 appointment, and we had to avoid the worst traffic through Portland. The appointment was routed to the Vancouver facilities because it was the earliest appointment available with the team we needed to see.
After several hours of appointments, we got an X-ray they wanted, and then we found out we had to go to the Portland VA center to fill out a form so the X-ray would go to the right place. Typical bureaucratic runaround.... Anyway, busy day.
At the Portland VA hospitals, they have a pedestrian skybridge that connects to the Oregon Health Sciences University, which shares the same hilltop location with the VA. Here is a picture of the skybridge.
From the skybridge, you can see a bit of downtown Portland and the Willamette river.
