Cemeteries in Portland?

Can anyone recommend a pretty cemetery to visit in Portland, Oregon in May?

    The most well-known cemetery with the most beautiful setting of large trees is Lone Fir in the central eastside part of Portland. It contains the graves of many early city leaders, some interesting headstones. Recently, an area adjacent to the cemetery was found to contain the graves of early Chinese laborers. It is being preserved and will be re-landscaped and integrated with the rest of the cemetery when funds are available. Enjoy!

    Lone Fir is also the one I visited and enjoyed, Loren. The mixture of the historical and the local-funky was fascinating, and Belmont, the neighborhood, is pleasant to walk around in, as well. (Just short of a mile east on Belmont is the Horse Brass pub,the place that O’lo and I returned to most often.)
