August 6, 2014 - Wednesday in Portland

Tues Aug 6 - we had an early start getting to Reed College for a tour. It's a beautiful small liberal arts college in Portland, yet it has a strong science program. They have their own nuclear reactor, and freshman can take a class and get licensed to work with it, very intriguing.  Here is Reed on the Reed Bridge over Reed Creek in Reed Canyon at Reed College.
We had lunch at a nearby German Deli highly recommended by Guy Fieri, then we headed downtown to one of Randy's favorite places in the world - Powell's Books. We were there a few hours and everyone went home with a couple of nice finds. As Bret reports, "a total of six stories of book-filled rooms the size of a city black. It should be one of the 7 wonders of the bookstore world, in my opinion."
