What Bert Has To Say About Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro Metro Area

Today’s Portland area is a wonderfully well-evolved, progressive and cosmopolitan Pacific Northwest center located at the junction of the Willamette and Columbia rivers, Originally founded as a trading center, Portland first grew during local gold rushes but then evolved first into a forest and food products processing and shipping point, now more recently into a center for the knowledge economy. The greater Portland area includes Vancouver, Washington across the Columbia River. South of the Columbia, numerous neighborhoods and communities spread east, south along the Willamette River, and west up into wooded plateaus west of downtown.
