For those considering this voyage, I wanted to give you a flavor of a place we visited today that would be well worth your time; the International Rose Test Garden.

Located in Portland, Oregon, it is the oldest official continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States.

Sited on nearly 7-acres, there are more than 10,000 individual rose bushes which bloom through October.  

 

Considering this voyage overnights in Portland at the height of fall’s color season, I can only imagine how beautiful the garden will be at that time.

It's a beautiful spot for sure. We went 2 years ago when we were in Portland. Nice setting and even more flowers than Stumbles posted pictures of!

I love roses.  Really need to visit this garden!

Rachel, check out my Facebook album for a better overview.  Over 600 varieties and I doubt I even captured 10% of them.  Truly spectacular.
