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!

... street from this little town's main drag where most restaurants were. For a city this small, the restaurant scene was pretty vibrant, and we had our pick at some very well rated establishments. We chose the closest one to our B&B, Brian's pourhouse, which was super busy. Hood River may be a small town but due to a steady stream of visitors who want to hike Mt Hood, windsurf in the river or take in the natural beauty of the gorge, it is not a backwoods-kind-of town.

We had a huge scare when we set up. The AC would not come on....we decided a motel was in order BUT the air finally clicked on. Another HALLELUJAH moment. It took hours to cool down. Luckily there were blackberries right behind ...
... big business around here because at least a hundred have floated past.
Our camp isn’t much to look at – rocky, gravelly dirt – with a picnic table and a post that tells us it’s Lucky #7. With Alan’s “discount” it costs us $6 (up from $4 during the week). 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.
