Tree down in Oregon City

Tree down on power lines in Oregon City

We headed out this afternoon to sled down the steep Pearl St in Oregon City. They keep that street closed in these conditions because it is so steep and dangerous. We found that part of 5th St., just north of the Pearl intersection was closed due to this LARGE fallen tree. If fell from atop a hill across the entire road, nearly missing a home. It took down power lines on both sides of the street, and there was an SUV abandoned in the middle of the street, and it seemed to be right over the power lines. After admiring the sight we headed off to sled.
