And so we drove south. My mom didn't arrive until almost nine and so we knew it would be a late night. The crazy irony of the whole rush departure is that Priceline put us in a 4-Star hotel Downtown Portland that we'd been wanting to stay in without spending the money. So it was a midnight arrival at the Hotel Deluxe.

Food was cheap and delicious and we got out of there at almost 1 AM. When we got back to the Deluxe we saw Dean Martin in the lobby. Or maybe I was just hallucinating since it was past my bedtime.
When we woke up in the morning, we took a quick walk around town to see the sights on the mean streets of the Goose Hollow neighborhood. The local soccer team plays here:
Our sightseeing didn't last long since Portland was really only a waypoint for our drive into the desert.
