It's a viewpoint. It's a ways down on the other side of that wall. :shock:

Very nice shot of Mt Hood. Dumb question: Why is the wall there? I don't mean why is the wall there in your photo (it's obviously essential) but why is it there physically. Just for the aesthetics of viewing the mountain? Or is it there as a property boundary? Or maybe there is a cliff on the other side?
There's a butte in the northeast part of Portland that has the wall running around the top of it. My sources tell me there used to be a prison up there; perhaps the wall was part of it. I don't know the purpose, but it's a very cool looking rock wall that has old lantern posts every few yards (unfortunately not in that pic). The wall is actually only a few feet high, I got down in the dirt for that pic.

(heheh, or maybe it is greenbaron's secret lab... the bleached skulls and faded 35mm film rolls surrounding the area scared me off!)
