This motel has nice landscaping, a nice big room with a balcony overlooking the Columbia River and the view couldn't be better. The room is clean, the bed comfortable, and they even have a frig and micro! Definitely a great value for what you get.

It all looked a giant dark medieval church organ.

Our final stop was Panorama Point. This overlook just before you get back to the Columbia River offers one of the most startling views to be found along this drive. We couldn't have timed our arrival ...
... it is where I want it. We hook up basically reversing the above procedure of picking up and packing up but it tends to go a little faster.

Hugh will not work again until the Labor Day weekend is over. His work day is over at today at 1400 hours. He then states that if he skips lunch and gets us oriented he can leave early. ...
