All the local farms are worth the price alone. You can strawberry, blueberries or peaches. You can bike the island or fish or hunt. Each section of this place has its own unique character.

Fun to get out to Sauvie Island and roam around. Lots of things to see. Enjoy it while you can. It is getting more and more closed up.
