I will be moving to the Portland area soon to attend school and work. Im not much of a big city person and I was wondering if there are any areas driving distance (30 min max) from North Portland that are somewhat secluded and remote. You know, big trees and posiblly some nice ponds, lakes, rivers,etc. Basically Im looking for some country near the city!
Does anyone know what area would be best for this?
P.S. I especially love older homes which I would hope to find!
