Portland, Oregon’s largest city, sits on the Columbia and Willamette rivers, in the shadow of snow-capped Mount Hood. It’s known for its parks, bridges and bicycle paths, as well as for its eco-friendliness and its microbreweries and coffeehouses. Iconic Washington Park encompasses sites from the formal Japanese Garden to Oregon Zoo and its railway. The city hosts thriving art, theater and music scenes || Amazing photo taken by @kreamerr_ from one of @enviadventures planes! || Join us in exploring the Upper Left by tagging your adventures to #upperleftliving || #portland#willamette#aerial
Going back to day one, this is the first lights ON image I took.
I asked the light company numerous times “ what’s the BTU output of your lights?”
The answer repeatedly was “2/3 of a Gavita”
Well that first few days I learned a lot about LED and where the heat is. I can assure you it’s not at the fixture and I absolutely do not believe it’s two thirds.
I feel it’s another important factor along side with PAR and PPFD that manufactures should be providing = BTU. Here’s the thing leds don’t Just make more light with less energy, they make it differently.
Whereas a HPS fixture has tremendous conductive/convective heat, have you touched a glowing bulb? LED from my direct field experience has tremendous radiant heat, just like the Sun.
(Yes everything with energy gives up radiant, conductive and convective heat)

#Repost@elprogramahispano / #Throwback to when our prevention team partnered with the Puentes program to provide classes on healthy relationships, challenging systems of oppression, and created a mural with our students ✨
During the summer the Puentes mentoring program works with incoming high schools students to ease their transition from middle school to high school. Our mentors facilitated classes to promote healthy eating habits, time management, and budgeting, as well as field trips to build community among students. This summer we partnered with @ProjectUNICA to provide classes on healthy relationships, consent, and challenging systems of oppression. Additionally, we brought in Rodolfo Serna a local muralist in Portland to create a mural that envisioned a world without violence. Many of the students chose images that reflected their cultural pride and their family’s migration stories. #Puentes#YouthOfColor#pdx#education#equity#murals#hike#powellbutte#oregon#Consent#HealthyRelationships
Although Portland tends to shut down in the snow, it sure is beautiful. ❄️❄️❄️| Repost @portland

One day they're hating you, the next day they're befriending you, those are the ones hoping to put an end to you, they'll use and abuse you, they're love is miniscule, they'll use you as at tool to get you're juice, don't be the fool.. Never keep anyone next to you, that don't want the best for you 💯🖤💤
