First Stop Inbound

It is early on a weekend morning in deepest autumn in this view.  Automobile lights are on, and MAX beams shine very brightly.  This train is at the first stop heading northbound and then away from center city.  The station is noted as PSU Urban Center/SW 6th & Montgomery on system maps.

Behind the LRV in the distance is a part of the West Hills area, more formally, a portion of the Tualatin Mountains.  This side of the Willamette River in Portland has a complex topography.  Portland Mall trains coming from the loop do a gradual descent along SW 6th Ave. for many blocks as they head into the heart of the city.
