Laura O. Foster introduces us to Portland as a "walking Mecca!"

Portland like you've never seen it! Laura O. Foster takes us on a tour of the City! Laura is the author of numerous books about Portland including Portland Hill Walks, The Portland Stairs Book, Portland City Walks and Walk There. She has been writing about Oregon since 2001, after careers as a commercial banker, technical writer, and book editor. Raised in suburban Chicago, she moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1989. With the enthusiasm of a former flatlander, she writes about topics such as Portland’s public stairways, parks, neighborhoods, and urban planning, the animals and people of the Oregon Zoo, recycled paint, and Oregon geology, ethnobotany, natural areas, and native plants. She introduces us to new ways of exploring Portland and to the folklore and history you city's neighborhoods. Portland is a "walking Mecca" she says!
