Highway 22

I found this old sign in an unlikely place, on the wall by the bathrooms at McFadden's in Old town. Not a place I'd usually be, in fact on a Saturday night I'd probably stand in the rain to avoid going in.
After watching the Derby in the bar at Dan & Louie's, (one of my personal 'happy places') we got caught in a crazy thunderstorm, so like any normal Portlanders, we took shelter in the nearest open bar.
In the afternoon, McFadden's is a quiet pub with anything you want on the TV, $2 happy hour food from 4-6, and a decent beer selection. Sure, its a little sterile and unauthentic, but there's lots of worse places, and in a downpour it was a godsend, and I got to see this old-school Oregon route marker.

Years ago there used to be one of these on the Scholls Ferry Road overpass on Hwy 217. They took it down sometime in the past 10 years I think...
