City of Portland Oregon

According to Wikipedia, Downtown Portland straddles the banks of the Willamette River which flows north through the city center, separating the east and west sections of the city before veering northwest to join with the Columbia River less than 10 miles from downtown. "The Columbia River serves as the natural boundary between the states of Washington and Oregon and consequently divides the city of Portland from its most populated suburb Vancouver, Washington. Portland is situated near the foothills of the Tualatin Mountains, also called the West Hills and the Southwest Hills, which pierce through the Northwest and Southwest regions of the city."
