Roses we saw when we rode the Hop On Hop Off Trolley on Friday, August 19

First stop, the Visitor Information Center at Pioneer Square where we got the two of them a 14-day TriMet pass so that we could ride all sorts of mass transit without having to worry with correct change and whether or not the transfer had expired. TriMet has several ticket windows right inside that doorway behind them. The waterfall feature sounds wonderful.

Milton stopped at the ticket booth for the Portland Hop On Hop Off Big Pink Sightseeing Trolley--it departs from Pioneer Square on the hour and stops at sights all over the city. We rode along until it came to the International Rose Test Garden in Washington Park. Here are some of the roses we saw.
