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."
