We arrived in Portland an hour later than scheduled and waited another hour for our luggage. Apparently there was something wrong with a door they needed open to get into the luggage hold. We were completely exhausted, but excited just the same. As we were landing we were treated with a spectacular view of Mt Hood. As we'd already paid a fortune to eat at the airport in Denver, we decided to head straight for the hotel so that we could get some rest and be up early the next day.
