That first cluebox could well be in Champoeg State Park, near Newberg (technically the address is across the Willamette River in St. Paul).  Could be the butte of Butteville in the background.  The trees with the trapeze thingy could easily be within Champoeg State Park.  I've done most of my marathon walk training in Champoeg the past 8 years, oodles of hours on foot there.  At any rate, that definitely isn't on Thunder Island.

But it could well be practically anywhere in NW Oregon.  That's what a 50-year old forest looks like - basically any place in NW Oregon they haven't logged since WWII.

Meanwhile, the multi-clue boxes photos are definitely on Thunder Island, after the zip line down from Bridge of the Gods.  That's some scary-crazy zip line.  Its a long WALK from Thunder Island to Bridge of the Gods (done that many, many times), let alone zipping over the wind-whipped ice-cold river.

The couple running through the airport photo - definitely Portland International Airport baggage claim.  I've spent a lot of time there as well :)

Portland in the news:

Rain or shine, Portland beckons By Lauren Viera | Chicago Tribune Staff Writer
PORTLAND, Ore.--Why everyone in the world hasn't up and moved to Portland is a mystery.

Beyond being virtually pollution-free, surrounded by lush greenery and, at 568,300 people, a manageable size, it's home to the kinds of people many folks would want as neighbors: laid back, eco-conscious city dwellers who love quality restaurants and art galleries and are as game for an evening in with a bottle of pinot as a morning hike through the woods.

Chicagoans, especially, seem to be Portlanders' kindred spirits. Between the two cities, we've got our priorities straight: We love organic food, strong coffee, independent bookstores and locally brewed beer. We like our cities near the water, preferably with a river running through them, and we don't let poor weather stand in the way of going out. We support the arts; we support our home teams. And we have killer independent music and arts scenes.

Chi-town and P-town may be two peas in a pod, but there's one defining characteristic associated with the City of Roses: rain. While sun worshipers may balk at the idea of visiting the Pacific Northwest at any time other than in its glorious 80-degree summers, Portland is arguably a year-round destination.

Head here in the fall and a light rain jacket will carry you through autumn leaf-covered streets to dozens of cafes in which to duck the drizzle. Visit Stumptown in the winter and a parka and an umbrella (though locals don't really use them) are a nice change from our snow gear, especially when there's a full agenda: Trailblazers games, movies at McMenamins' brew-and-view theaters, tax-free shopping in Nob Hill and, if you've got time, day trips to the mountains, the coast or both.

Thats makes sense and thanks Chateau! The filming on the Bridge wrapped up around 2:30pm according to the witness sightings.

And thanks for the additional info walkingguide :thankyou:. Alas a tree is a tree, a path is a path, without a landmark of some sort we can only narrow it down to the probable Newberg area  :groan:

It looks like the backyard where I grew up (Seattle area)  :lol:

It's the general look of the Pacific NW where nobody has built any houses etc.

Wow, thanks.  :cmas16 Tilikum was right there when I searched "zip line" and "Newberg," but I had discounted it because I didn't think WRP would hook up with a private religious college (George Fox U. takes up a chunk of downtown Newberg). Kmz attached.

Challenge Course
 Tilikum's challenge course is a collection of ropes, cables, wooden beams, tires, and logs assembled to present activities for the purpose of individual and group growth and discovery.

The structures (normally referred to as "elements") made from these materials are placed anywhere from ground level to 123 feet up in the trees. Our course is located in an impressive stand of 100-year-old Douglas fir trees. Our indoor facility -- styled after a Northwest Indian longhouse -- also allows us to run year-round programs. Our course was originally built by Project Adventure Inc. and has been maintained by Synergo, a leader in the field of challenge course facilitation,construction, training, and inspection.
