Splendid time had... More

So much to do from fishing to boating to a Paddle Wheel tour. Scenery is great and a lot more to do.

The Columbia Gorge offers the very best of it all- scenic waterfalls, hiking tails, vistas, the majestic Columbia River, best ice cream cones ever at Cascade Locks, quaint & charming towns along the way.

Arrived in Portland and crossed the river to Washington State. Traveled west to east on the Washington side, crossed over at The Dalles and traveled east to west back to Portland. Allow plenty of time for stops along the road.

We came here to enjoy the scenery and boy is there a view. The river is much wide than I expected and there are several vantage points along the road. One of my favorite areas in the US.
