After a late arrival, I stayed with a friend in a hotel near the airport. We headed out from Portland fairly early on I84 East. We had no real plan, but a couple free tourism guides that we picked up at the airport. Our first impetuous stop was Multnomah Falls. It turns out it is Oregon's top tourist attraction. I didn't look that grand from the …

That's correct, our first day off in 18 days. Whew, it's been tough, but somebody's got to do it! OK, ok, it's really not a real tough job, now is it, Mike. Well, no. Besides, we enjoy our time working here at the hatchery. Not all time is consumed in work. In fact, we work four of five hours a day ...
Since our last post on September 11 we have had a lot of folks visit the hatchery. Some just wander around and drink in the beauty of the grounds.

The weather was very warm yesterday and very, very warm today reaching 97 degrees here in this beautiful Columbia Gorge. We headed for our home on wheels after spending most of the morning completing our chores but did not completely escape the heat.

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.
