We had a beautiful river view. The hotel backs up to the gorge/river. We could also see the Bridge of the Gods from our window. The room was large and clean. The inn is very close to the train tracks, but it didn't bother either of us. The inn provided earplugs, but we didn't feel we needed them. The breakfast was typical of a hotel in this price range. Plenty of options, but nothing to knock your socks off.

While here at Bonneville Fish Hatchery it always surprises me how fast the time goes by … Here we are half finished with our stay and we have already had many family visit for the '$100' tour! Cousin Bill from Yakima; another Cousin Irene from Indiana, relocating to the Pacific Northwest and now from Vancouver, WA; Mom celebrated her 86th Birthday and my sister Shirley with a tour of the Hatchery and especially liked ...
... had been in training a very brief time. It was painful to watch her try and take an order and deliver it within 30 minutes and most of us only wanted a beer! Perhaps she should try another vocation. Although, I do strongly recommend the “Easy Blonde” ale.
On our stroll back to the car, we posed in front of the establishment, Naked Winery. Under further investigation ...
... coin in the stomachs of fish that have died… We also have to keep the grates where the water leaves the ponds free of leaves, fill the fish dispensers that people can purchase a small amount of fish food to feed the trout for a quarter… 8 months a year it’s filling the machines twice a week and moving the funds from the machine to a counting machine and safe once a week… In the summer this is a daily process… ...
