Portland: Powells and OMSI

Running a little behind on blogging here, too busy seeing new stuff! Here is my Portland Day 2 collection.

We saw Powells "City of Books" bookstore, which takes up an entire city block, four stories high! Special highlights include the Rare Book Room, the Gift Editions shelf, and, frankly, the shear size of the shelves, which always towered above us at about 9 feet tall!

In the evening, we went to the After Dark edition of OMSI, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. 21+, they serve alcohol and you get some behind the scenes access, which is super cool. We even got to help carve stone away from a fossil, using a special vibrating tool, awesome! They had pretty awesome turn out at this event, the parking lot was overflowing.
