Elk, revisited, here and there
This is the second picture I've posted of this elk statue/fountain in the middle of Main Street in downtown Portland. You can see the photo from the September 14 post and read about it and the southernmost park, Chapman Square, here.
I wanted you to see exactly what the traffic does with the statue, so after work one day the first week of October, I stopped where SW Main Street intersects SW 4th Avenue, turned facing northeast and took this photo. The David P. Thompson Memorial Fountain began as a watering trough for horses. Now every day thousands of horses slip by it on the right or the left--horse power, that is.
Also I've posted another photo of the park and the elk at Mama and Me from PDX. You'll get to see another example of Portland's beautiful autumn leaves and find out all about the northernmost park, Lownsdale Square.
