Stop & Smell The Cherry Blossoms

Portland in springtime is renowned for its cherry blossom trees sprinkled all over the city and surrounding areas. In late March and early April, Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland is a photographer and selfie seekers delight with thousands of blooming trees lining the waters edge. But if you miss this amazing sight for any reason, dont despair. There is yet another lesser known park which offers the same stunning views, on the outskirts of Portland.

Blue Lake Regional Park in Fairview, OR, about 30 minutes drive from Portland, offers an impressive array of sakuras throughout the park. The varieties of trees grown here bloom slightly later, towards mid-late April, but look just as magical as their sister variety at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. As always, sunset is the best time to capture these beauties.
