Eco roof on Multnomah building. New Tilikum crossing bridge visible in the distance.  #Portland #pdx

These photos are from earlier this month - June 4 to be exact. I had to go to an all day work thing at the Multnomah Building and surprising no one, I was NOT looking forward to it. I was the worst - the whiny one inventing wild surmises about what awaited us once we got there. I'm not proud of it. I have a respectful terror of the possibility of team building skits and my mouth gets out ahead of my brain.

But you know what? it wasn't bad, really. (NO SKITS.)  At the afternoon break I went upstairs with some friends to visit the eco-roof and it was amazing!


I guess I don't normally think of these kind of wildflowers and grasses to be on an eco-roof.  These are all native plants and don't need much minding. The view was spectacular. It was also the beginning of Rose Festival and we could see the Fleet starting to come in - what a day for it!

Eco roof on the Multnomah building. So pretty!  #Portland #pdx

I would imagine the eco-roof is no longer at its peak, but it IS open to the public!  If you find yourself with a few extra minutes while in or around 501 SE Hawthorne, I recommend it.
