TriMet's MAX Light Rail passes by the Rockwood/East 188th station in Portland, Oregon. The station features "Rockwood Sunrise," a rooftop art installation that may be the most striking in the region. The author takes us on a whirlwind tour of Portland's transit to see if the entire system can be covered in one day. PHOTO BY ALEXANDER B. CRAGHEAD
