Thursday morning we loaded up, said our goodbyes to the beach, & headed inland to The Dalles, OR. Along the Columbia River between Portland & The Dalles, there are several scenic drives & waterfalls. We stopped first at Wahkeena Falls which is a 242 foot waterfall. We hiked up a .2 mile trail to a stone bridge which crosses the falls. You were close enough on the bridge to feel the spray from the falls. Reed enjoyed getting wet!

The view of the river and the constant sound of her rushing by make up for a lack of amenities – plus, big bonus, no kids.

... a few kite surfers struggling to get themselves out on the water - pretty impressive once they did get out there though.
Made a stop at East Wind Drive-In back in Cascade Locks. I insisted I needed to have a giant ice cream cone like the ones I had seen when we drove by before. I initially ordered the medium but the woman gave me a fair warning of the sizes so I reluctantly agreed to go with the small. As you can tell by the pic the small was plenty and I think this ...
