Don't be fooled. Inside this thin coating of sweetness is a fiery core of total insanity.

Washington Park's Japanese Garden in Portland

The Japanese Garden in Portland's Washington Park covers 5 1/2 acres in the hills west of the city.  Opened on June 1, 1967, it was built on the site of Portland's former zoo. The garden is on Sunset magazine's list of top 13 public gardens in the U.S.

It's a lovely garden, very peaceful and serene.

Wisteria was in bloom, hanging from a large arch that you enter through

It can take up to 4 hours to rake this design into the sand. How do they do it without leaving footprints?

Hope you enjoyed this peaceful walk through the greenery. Tomorrow: Lan Su Garden
