aloft

Portland built an aerial tram a few years ago, connecting the medical campus for OHSU to the south waterfront.
Downhill is free :) 
That's Mt. Hood in the distance. It's a super smooth ride. 
At the bottom, we walked over the new Tilikum bridge, the 12th bridge over the Willamette within city limits. 
Cars aren't allowed on the bridge. Only buses, pedestrians, cyclists, and a new streetcar line. 
Below the river was filled with activity. Barges and sailboats and a school of standup paddleboarders. 
The best part is it runs till after dark. The southern waterfront is a sea of activity. Check it out.
